You can never have too many Nanos. Especially if you’re the type to litter the mountain with biners. The 22 is a revamped version of the classic CAMP Nano carabiner, which set the standard for lightweight functionality. The new version has a refined gate for easier clipping and a deeper basket for holding the rope position. CAMP also managed to increase the open-gate strength while subtracting a gram. The biggest little biner on the market comes in eight colors for your sorting and racking pleasure.

  • Wide gate opening helps slot your rope or anchor while wearing gloves.
  • Inner space is large enough for a clove hitch using any rope.
  • Profiled nose can slip into tight chain links or harness loops.
  • Weighs just 22 grams, which had a big influence on the name.

In my opinion the best wiregate currently on the market. Very light, small but the gate opens to a reasonable width, and the nose is very small profile. They do like to snag on the floss line gear loops of skimo harnesses but I think its worth the weight savings.

One downside: the low price is reflected in a lack of quality control, if you buy a few rackpacks worth you inevitably get a few with sticky gates.

I love camp Nanos!! I have quite a few on my rack and am always looking for good prices on more! It is surprisingly large for its weight. It is very thin so I always double check that I don't have any bending forces on it when its weighted. I use these for alpine draws and it is harder to clip the rope but I think the weight savings are worth it in the alpine. I also use them for all of my crevasse rescue gear that doesn't require a locker.

These and Metolius FS Minis are my go-to lightweight climbing biners these days. The Nano is a touch lighter than the FS mini while also being bigger and easier to clip/unclip. I pare down my rack to single nanos + 8mm dyneema slings in the smallest quantity I can get away with for big alpine stuff. The weight and bulk reduction really adds up. Neat that they come in colors now - maybe soon it will be time to upgrade my racking biners!
