Wild Country Friend 4.0 Size

Season:SS22

Brand:Wild Country

Code:5063342

The largest of Wild Country's New Friends, the size 4 is perfect for larger placements. The Iconic Friend design has been updated and now has twin hollow axles, a 12mm Dyneema extender and skimmed faces on the cam lobes.

The hollow axles (Patented) are stiffer, yet lighter. while the wide, skimmed lobes, hot forged in soft alloy, give the Friend better grip, yet is kinder on the rock. The new 12mm dyneema sling is agile and easily extended, saving time and the weight of having to use a quickdraw on each Friend.

At the heart of each generation of the Friend has been the definitive 13.75 cam angle; described, refined and developed by Wild Country and proven in thousands of miles of cracks climbed since 1977! This new Friend is no different, built with a twin axle it remains a Friend. Robust and reliable this Friend combines classic features and significant additions to create an intriguing mix of old and new.

Buyers Guide - How to choose Choose a Traditional Climbing Rack

Excited to be buying the first bits of lead gear to build your trad rack? So are we!

Our climbing gear walls have been described as some of the best in Europe (by our International Reps who know a thing or two) and as boulderers, sport climbers, trad climbers and mountaineers ourselves we LOVE to talk about gear. Both the Joe Brown shops, and The Climbers Shop have been supplying climbers and expeditions since 1966 and 1959 respectively, we were founded by climbers and the only thing we love more than talking about gear is actually going climbing ourselves. We don’t just learn about what’s the best kit to use – we know what’s the best kit to use……..


- What is the first piece of protection I should buy?

- What length Quickdraws are best?
- Why are there so many different lengths slings?
- How do I choose which karabiners to add?
- Can I lead if I don’t own any cams?
- Do I really need to carry Prusik Loops?
- How do I know when my gear has worn out?




Top tips to make the right choice:

Go shopping with your mate and/or someone more experienced so you buy the right thing for the routes you climb and, more importantly, gear that compliments each other’s racks.

Tag your gear so that you know who’s is who. We sell purpose made tags or you could use your own personal design of insulation tape.

Buy a length of rope off the reel and practice your knots so they become second nature. Tying a clove hitch one handed without bending your fingers looks REALLY cool!

Regularly tie yourself to a stair banister so you can prefect your belaying skills and be super slick out on the crag. It saves time and means you can enjoy the route and make it back to the pub to revel in your success.

Join a club – it’s the cheapest way to learn and you’ll have an instant pool of climbing partners or hire an Instructor or Guide to learn loads of great tips and techniques.
