Wild Country's Friend has been a friend to trad climbers since 1977. It was the original camming device, and keeping true to original innovation, Wild Country proudly presents its ultralight Zero Friend for modern climbing. For the first time in over forty years, Wild Country slightly adapted the original camming angle (13.75Â°) for perhaps the narrowest heads on the market. Each Zero Friend fits in shallower placements, thinner cracks, pockets, or even peg scars better than ever before. The single stem has armored metal plates to maintain a stiff flex no found in single stems. The thumb loop is completely ergonomic, and the slim Dyneema sling expands to reduce rope drag.
