The caber is a pole about 18 feet long weighing about 115 pounds. The athlete holds the caber upright, grasping it by its thin end, and throws it so that it lands on its heavy end and flips over. The throw is not judged on distance, but direction. If the thrower is imagined to stand at the center of a clock with 6 at his back, the thin end ideally falls at a 12 o'clock position.
