This is what a well-placed cam should look like in sandstone.

looks better than some of the great Fisher Towers cam placements. It's even creepier out there when your cam starts grind it's way out! I also learned a fun lesson about placing TCUs in soft rock out there: they'll hold for a few minutes and then shear out unexpectedly.

The right-sized alien with it's narrower head, as well as more flexible single-stem, would probably fit in that hole much better.

It looks like it will work, and it also looks like there might be good passive placements just a few inches above. Mushy stuff, that.

More bomber pro, great surface area contact... It was to begin with anyway, tells ya something about the rock.(I watched it crumble around the lobes as I was on it)
