I tried the next size, it ripped out by hand after looking textbook... You don't know what your talking about. It had to do with the shape of the pod flaring outward for the outer half where that size would fit(with the soft sandy rock this flare spit that size cam out), it would not go back in there deep to where the flare wasn't working against it, where this cam would.

This route is probly hard C3, if a noobie looks at a C3 route's pictures expecting to see bomber gear then that person needs to learn more about aid. This is what hard aid is about making things work where normal placements yeild no progress. That's all I could get to stick.

Maybe you should send this before you go trying to act like you know what your talking about, as far as I can tell your comments are invalid. Dec 4, 2008

I agree this is a bad piece only because it looks like the wrong size cam to use. The next size up looks like it would have fit better and have been a lot safer especially in soft sandstone. I'm saying this so beginner aid climbers don't see this picture and think that's an ok placement of a cam. Nov 29, 2008
