Aliens and BD 6s: Great New Gear

On the much larger side of climbing gear, the Black Diamond #6 camalot is now available.  Where Aliens are best for the small, this BD cam is ideal for the big.   The Salt Lake City climbing company engineered this piece to not only be light weight but the cam heads are widely placed so the device won;t tip out when you're pushing it up your next grueling offwidth testpiece.  Make sure you have one of these big guys for when you charge up the Hollow Flake on the Salathe.
