"The Valley Giant oversize cams are the ultimate in wide crack pro, fitting all the way up to an awesome 12 inches (300mm). Their stance is wide enough with the proper spring tension to virtually eliminate all tendency to walk in cracks. Designed, manufactured and used by a mechanical engineer with multiple patents, they are extremely smooth in operation and incredibly strong. The quality and attention to detail exceeds that of commercial cams.
The Valley Giant series began with the #9, specifically intended for the Hollow Flake Crack on El Capitan's Salathe Wall. The range was later expanded with the #12 to accomodate the even wider cracks of the Excalibur. These two sizes take over and keep going where other cam lineups give up and quit.
These oversized SLCD's are perfect for Yosemite Valley, the Devil's Tower, Zion, Vedauwoo, and other wide crack meccas. If your perversion of choice is offwidth hell, these finely crafted masterpieces will give you the confidence to get up those unprotectable death traps.
No other cam or device can match the size, convenience, reliability and safety of the Valley Giants. They are ideal as self-belay pusher pieces that move ahead of you in the crack, or as conventional pro. The strength exceeds that of any commercial cam, making the Valley Giant also the perfect choice for belays, hanging bivouacs and rescue anchors. "
