if the cracks are parallel and somewhat deeper ... cams all the way

if they are shallow, not so parallel and pockety ... then tri cams

that said ... when starting out, cams are often the better choice in many areas ... especially if you plan to start leading trad and when the climbing gets hard

i dont know anyone who leads hard trad solely on tricams (or hexes for that matter) ... usually the tricams are used for when there are good stances or belays

if you plan to lead harder trad in the future ... get cams

if you never plan to lead and are using them solely for anchors ... tri cams will work fine ... but you absolutely must know how to place em, they are more finicky IMO than cams ...
