I saw somewhere that totem cams can be placed with only 2 lobes in contact with the rock - is that true?

Hi Shayne, As far as I'm aware, with the way new Totem cams are constructed, (with separate slings and a direct loading system), it's possible to load each set of lobes independently. From what I read, this would be fine for body-weight placements when aid climbing, (where placements in shallow pin-scar cracks would be more common anyway), but marginal at best if placed to protect a fall. Hope that helps, Adam
