Product Description

Wild Country Long Stem Zero Cams protect cracks down to knifeblade size without the need to get out the hammer and heavy metal. Since their introduction, these keychain-size cams have been helping to shave time off big wall speed records and allowing mortal climbers to make their bivy before dark. Wild Country gave the Long Stem Zero Cams a thumbhole loop to clip in short on aid moves and an extendable sling to help reduce rope drag. These incredibly tiny pieces of protection now have longer stems to allow placements in deep cracks and nearly out-of-reach pockets.

I have busted....
a few metolius 00 and 0 stems taking lead falls...on big wall sandstone, a lot of time we are placing our gear quite deep....this new design is for such purpose and can help avoid the aid gear on some short routes (hammer and knife blades)

Updated design
.. to the WC Zero : longer stem and bigger trigger bar, which should make them easier to clean. I own Z4-Z6 and they are nice alternatives to BD C3's, CCH aliens, etc.
