outward force on cams when loaded 14-Jun-2015 At 9:35:24 PM harold
Cams in that sort of flake is a really really bad idea. Huge outward force which is why they work so good.

If you noticed a large amount of rock debris on the ground it is the remains of a 2m tall by 10cm thick chunk of flake I pulled off from there on abseil with the lightest of prods - which had become dangerously loose I suspect from from someone i know previously placing a cam in there and falling on it. Could have really ruined someones day. It was pretty scary watching that thing fall and explode.

What remains is a lot more solid than before and probably ok with hexes and nuts but I still wouldn't be using cams on it.
