I know folks like tricams at LG, but, I prefer cams. You can always just try to sling the ones stuck in the eyebrows...

I take a double set of cams from thin fingers up to hand crack size. Maybe a couple each of the smallish cams. And one or two bigger. Ie, supplement your rack with 0 through 5 or even 7 metolius three cam units. Seem to fit well.

Set of stoppers, good to go.

Slings and draws to match, of course...

Sounds like you have enough gear. Definitely bring the tri-cams. They'll protect even some of the shallower eyebrows that cams won't. The only thing I'd add would be a few mid to larg-ish sizes tri cams.

You'll want a good variety of cam sizes--the eyebrows are narrow at the ends and generally wider in the middle, so you have multiple options. LG's an awesome place, enjoy!

Freaking A Brian! Is there anywhere in North America you don't have experience with? You really do get around, my friend.

One of my passions is to go to new (to me) climbing areas...and North Carolina has become a favorite place, one that I return to. Have done several trips to LG. And Stone. Yummy!

On the list for this fall...Arkansas, Oklahoma. Would like to get back to So. Ill too (haven't climbed at Drapers Bluff yet), but, we'll see how much time we got. Devil's Lake WI on the list too...

Etc etc.
