Topic - Removing a stuck cam - any tips?

Fiona Reid - on 02 Jun 2014

Hi Folks,

I'm looking for some tips for removing 2 stuck cams from one of my local routes (Heathy at Rosyth quarry).

The online guides I've found seem to apply to newly placed cams, however these appear to have been there for a while - one us missing the handle/tape and has bare trigger wires poking out of the crack. The other one is more or less intact but well stuck and very deep in the crack They are right next to each other which makes getting past them a blooming nuisance.

They are both stuck in a corner crack that's about an inch wide which means getting at them will be fiddly. I can abseil in easily though. Tool wise I have a hammer, long flat blade screw driver, 2 nut keys, hacksaw and blades, some small wire cutters that will go through trigger wires but not much else, plus a big file which I might be able to use to whack things with.

Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
