Totem cams seem to be rapidly gaining popularity, which is great. I'm building my set and they are really innovative and hope they challenge the major manufactures to step up there R&D.

I can't really find any info on the history of them though and I'm curious, so if anyone knows some background please let me know! I fist saw them maybe 3 years ago, but when did they hit the market? Who designed them and where? Were they designed with a specific type of climbing or area in mind? Will there be a second gen, or larger sizes at some point?

Thanks!
