No Returns on Climbing Gear

For the safety of all of our customers, we cannot take back climbing gear. Please give us a call if you are unsure if this product is right for you.


The Photon Wire remains one of the lightest carabiners in the world and is still significantly larger than other carabiners in its class. The newest generation features an updated body design that increases strength and rigidity to handle the odd stresses that climbers put on their gear. We [C.A.M.P.] have also redesigned the interface between the gate and nose to help protect the wire gate from damage or accidental opening. The Photon Wire is perfect for climbers who want a racking carabiner that is lightweight and low-profile but still clips with the ease of a high-end quickdraw. It is particularly well-suited for difficult trad leads or alpine mixed routes and ice climbing where a full-size carabiner is much easier to operate while wearing gloves.

  • Still the lightest full-size carabiner in the world.
  • Optimized body design increases rigidity and strength without increasing weight.
  • Redesigned interface between the gate and nose helps to protect the wire gate from damage and accidental opening.
