Does anyone in the Wasatch Front regularly use Alien cams? If so, what works best for our areas? Looking to buy 2 or 3. 

Thanks!

IME's got the Alien Revolution Lites, in stock...

Have the originals and the Totems, which are sweet.  Blue, Green, and Yellow are probably used the most.  Red supplements where the #0.5 is the right width but just doesn't quite work.

But sorry, they're not for sale!

@Charlie S do you use the offsets much? Quite a few flared cracks in LCC that seem to be perfect for them.

I've got an Alien Lite I'm looking to sell if you want. PM me.

Blue, green, yellow, and if you wanna add a 4th, grey.

Lites had issues with the first gen ones, but they're currently on their 2nd gen, so if you buy one, I'd go for the newer second gen ones. I had an early one that the trigger sheath broke on, meaning it couldn't be retracted to get out...

I never got into the offsets.  Even the hardcore Gunkies were unable to convince me to switch over when I was back east.

Usually if it's an offset crack that fits an offset Alien, a nut seems to work better.  At least on the average.

The green seems to fit in most pin scars very well. I'd go with a green and a yellow! The gear room has the original aliens aka not the lites. They seem to last quite a bit longer however, not as lite....

Why would you need Aliens for LCC?  I thought last week as a community, we had decided that free soloing in BCC and bolting all cracks in LCC were the new standards for the area?

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
