Re: Top 10 Classic Trad Lines 5.10a and Under

cams are cams. Before maxing out your credit card consider going onto mountain project and picking up some used gear. Almost everything on my rack was slightly used when I bought it. Doesn't take an engineering to determine whether it's still safe. Benefit of this strategy is you can try different s...
