I've now had a chance to really put Link Cams to the test. I climb a lot at Frog Buttress in SE Queensland. This world class crack destination is one of the ultimate proving grounds for cams. The two sizes of Link Cams available were placed in many different types of cracks. Where they shone excellently were on those non parallel sided cracks with a lot of non conformity within the crack. The rougher the crack the better as the links tended to fold around the roughness like a chain. This made the cams stick even better. Of course even on very smooth sided cracks the cams stuck no problem at all. The ease of placement made Link Cams rather easy to use, just grab the cam plug it in and set and forget. The spring tension was perfect as the cams definitely gave me the impression of solidity and robustness in all placements. Yes the axle width is far greater than say an Alien so placing them in pin scars and pods is out but for most cracks the Link Cams are awesome. I am very happy with my Link Cams and they will categorically be a permanent addition to my crack rack for Frog Buttress. They are also cool to share around your friends to try out. Without exception they all thought they were excellent pieces. Go buy em.
