  • CAMP Corsa Nanotech ice axe

    When light is right, CAMP has proven they are the go-to guys. The bigger players in backcountry hardware have followed their lead in the past few years, releasing ultralight crampons, axes and more, but CAMP is still a great benchmark. We've been using their Corsa Nanotech axe for years now. They took their Corsa ice […]

  • CAMP USA Tour 350 Crampons

    When it comes to your feet, lighter is definitely righter. Don't bring more foot-weight than you need, and in the case of glacier travel it seems like you see a lot of full-steel crampons where something a little racier will do.

I learned all about nanotechnology from reading Michael Crichton’s Prey, and I’m happy to report CAMP’s XLC Nanotech […]

  • CAMP Nano 23 carabiner

    It’s getting difficult to keep up. A month ago I bought a CAMP Nano Wire carabiner. Before I can even get off my lazy keister to review it what do I see while strolling through the aisles of REI – hey, I was there to buy a snowsuit for my 2-year old – but this […]

  • CAMP Joker v-thread tool

    Yes, you can make a v-thread hook yourself out of a spare coat hanger. Go for it, McGyver. Just don’t come whining to me when it straightens out on you three pitches up your worst frozen nightmare. Or you can buy a Camp Joker v-thread tool for the cost of a six-pack of good beer. […]
