Last week while climbing with a newby, my yellow #0.2 BD cam got stuck as he CRAMMED that thing way back in there, halfway up the first pitch. I tried for a half-hour to get it out with no luck and alot of bloody knuckles.

I know the ethic....your free it, you own it....but if you got it out, can you at least tell me HOW you did it?

Thanks.

Isn't the ethic for the noobie to pay for your gear they drop/fix/lose?

I heard about a cam removal trick from crusty old tradder and got to try it out recently. There were two over-cammed cams on this one climb, neither of which I was able to get out until I poured water over the lobes. Seems like common sense, water is a lubricant after all. Perhaps everyone knows this one, but it was a new trick to me.

Not sure that would help in the situation described in the OP.
