Omega Pacific®'s revolutionary Link Cam can help you minimize your rack and maximize your potential.

  • With a camming ratio of over 2.5:1, the Link Cam can cover the same range as up to four standard cams--lighten your rack!
  • Larger range eliminates the need for specialized, offset cams for flared-crack protection while higher surface area contact lessens "walking" of cam
  • Patented, hinged cam lobes collapse even further during retraction for easier "plug and go" placements
  • Maintaining a constant cam angle of 13.5°, Link Cams achieve a wide range without sacrificing holding power
  • Built with a hybrid blend of materials and advanced metal-injection molding process, Link Cams offer the ultimate in strength and versatility
  • Made with 17-4 aircraft stainless steel on the inner links and lightweight 7000-series aluminum on the outer link lobes
  • Cross-cabling and "Swivlet" connectors ensure smooth trigger action and increased range
  • Lightweight, rugged Spectra slings for lasting service and reliability
  • Link Cams are great for that crux move, just grab, place and relax!

Available in 4 sizes. See specifications listed below for size = range / strength / weight:

  • #0.5 = 13.5 - 35mm / 8kN / 95g
  • #0.75 = 17.8 - 44.5mm / 10kN / 113g
  • #1 = 21.1 - 53.3mm / 14kN / 176g

Omega Pacific Link Camsis rated4.6667out of5by3.
Rated5out of5byfromWide Range Comes In HandyI love the OP link cams because of the wide range of application. Also, they are color coded to match BD's C4s, so I know what I have left on my rack when I look down to grab a piece. I usually carry a full set of C4s with sometimes doubles of #3 and above depending on the size of the crack. I usually also carry one or two sets of OP link cams depending on the length of the route, how difficult the route is and whether I have to build my own anchor. I sometimes also carry a .5 link cam and .75 link cam on bolted routes where there are long runouts between bolts and potentially a crack where I can add my own gear for extra protection. The only downside is that it is difficult to examine the integrity of the placement in a crack if you use the second or third lobes because the first lobes block most of the line of sight. Therefore, you should be very good at placing gear before using the OP link cams.

Rated4out of5byfromGreatI bought this as my first piece of active pro, for use in protecting runout sport/mixed routes. It has served its purpose well. Now it rests on my trad rack amongst my other cams, as a backup in case I need a size that I've already placed back down the line. Handy little piece, but I'm not going to invest in a whole rack of them.

Rated5out of5byfromLife SaverLink cams can be fantastic when you quickly need to get a cam in and you're not sure of the exact size. They've saved my bacon at the end of a long climb. I like to keep them for the end if possible, since they are so versatile. They can be a little trickier to place, so please be sure to understand how to place them (ie, not horizontal and watch for equally engaged lobes.) Not a good beginner cam, but fantastic once you've got the basics down.
