Wild Country's Friend Camming Device started saving climbers in 1977, and what once was a bulky, heavy, steel-stemmed monstrosity is now a superlight, highly-refined beauty for the contemporary climber. Modern updates include the groundbreaking double axle design that allows passive placements, and Wild Country upgraded each axle with a hollow interior to reduce weight without inhibiting the cam's overall strength. The Friend also features a new Dyneema sling that extends to resist rope drag and keep the rope out of cracks. Hot-forged construction keeps the cam as light as the competition, and high-friction faces ensure grip on the slipperiest stone. Both the trigger and thumb loop style an ergonomic feel, and the trigger features stops for easier cleaning.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
