We'll bring the beer, you bring that beautiful smile (and this month, your cams if you have em)!

This year we are introducing a twist to our pint nights. At each pint night we will gather at a local pub and spend part of the evening nerding out on a pre-determined kind of gear. From cams, to ice tools to carabiners, and beyond!

This month, the theme is SPRING LOADED CAMMING DEVICES (Or, as pretty much everyone refers to them, CAMS). We'll have a local gear nerd/ cam enthusiast give a short presentation that should keep even the most veteran of climbers engaged, and then chat informally about some of the pros and cons of the various options that exist on the market today. We will also be giving away prizes to the most mangled cam, oldest, and biggest cams in Philly. So bring along your most jankey wheeley-jawns and compete for bottom of the barrel! 

Regardless whether you're a trad dad that's been at it for 20 years, or curious to try climbing outside sometime in the future, this is a chance to learn about the finer points of one of the most versatile tools for protecting traditional rock climbs.
