Splitter Cams - any opinions?
« on: October 13, 2006, 01:20:01 pm »
I have a line on some cheap, lightly-used splitter cams - 2 and 4-cam units.

Are they worth buying/carrying for aid?  I primarily climb on granite (squamish).
I've poked around online and found decidedly mixed reviews...

thanks

Dave

Cybele had some on her rack when I climbed Dihedral Wall with her.  I never used them once.  I don't like them for El Cap granite - Hybrid Aliens are hugely better.

There is reason you don't see these things around anymore, eh?

Yeah, but they are a hell of lot cheaper than alien hybrids.  They're not too bad for the money.
