Colorado Custom Hardware (CCH) has recently issued a recall of their Alien rock climbing cams due to defects and safety hazards. The company has received one report of an Alien cam failing during use.
Cams are camming anchors used to support and protect rock climbers during ascents. These cams were sold at nationwide climbing stores, mountain equipment stores, and online retailers from November 2004 to December 2005.
Consumers with the defective CCH cams should discontinue use and contact the manufacturer for a return, repair, or replacement.
