I noticed the lobes on that rigid in your picture look brand new. The friend of the friend of the friend.....however looks like you've climbed more than a couple chimneys with it on your gear loop.

Hiking in RMNP
The SLCDs were given to me by the same friend who gave me the Leeper . . . unfortunately he took a hard ground fall messing up his ankles real bad: he held on to his gear for decades hoping one day he could climb again, but other (non-climbing related) injuries occurred and he finally had to retire from the sport. When he found out I was climbing again he gave me his SLCDs since I only had a rack of passive pro. The SLCDs have been used for only about a dozen pitches since I got them, at Lumpy, the Voo, and Duncan's Ridge at Horsetooth Reservoir. The placements have been precise, the cams didn't walk, and they never protected a fall, so they are still brand new looking. The slings also look brand new, they were stored inside away from UV, heat, etc., but I wonder if I need to replace them anyway . . . does Nylon deteriorate that badly under optimum storage conditions that I need to worry?

Yes, yes they do. It is inexpensive and in your best interest to replace them. Plus, why worry about something so simple to fix?

Speaking of tricams, anyone played with the new (to me) .25 Camp Tricam? I saw them in the store yesterday and I was gonna pick one up, but then I remember that I hardly ever use tricams anymore. I'd be curious to know if people find it (.25) to be a useful size though. --Marc


I placed my .25 tricam the other day and my partner had a terrible time cleaning it so much that I told him to leave it and I'd get it later. When I came back for it, I cleaned it in less than three seconds and realized I hadn't explained how to remove a tricam. I've fell on tricams and had no problem cleaning them. Understanding how a tricam works goes a long way to cleaning one. Pulling or sliding it around won't do it. It has to be pushed back in off it's cam then removed.

.25 is a good size. It might become the new pink...

+1, I would always find a great horizontal placement just barely too small for a pinky, and the black .25 fills that niche perfectly now; I use it fairly often.

The Friend of a Friend is the best! In the 23 years I've owned one - a gift from the, um, friend with whom I did Half Dome - it has never once failed me. If you can get your hands on one, it's worth the money. They were $25 way back in '87, so mine almost paid for itself twice the first time I used it.
