Weighing in at only 82g and featuring 2 snag-free 'biners, the Black Diamond HoodWire quickdraw set won't slow you down on challenging sport climbs.
There's nothing worse than fumbling with a tricky clip during the crux move of your sport project. Eliminate the post-fall frustrations and sloppy clipping with the Black Diamond HoodWire Quickdraw. Black Diamond's patented stainless steel wire hood keeps the 'biner from snagging on slings or bolt hangars, so you get clean, quick clipping action. Extra features don't have to mean extra weight: the HoodWire draw is no more beefy than comparable draws with less functionality.
The HoodWire Quickpack from Black Diamond gives you six HoodWire Quickdraws, with hot-forged HoodWire carabiners on both the top and bottom. From overhanging clip-ups to frigid alpine ridges, the HoodWire biner's metal hood eliminates snags when cleaning, and the wiregate design lowers the weight and resists freezing in winter conditions.
You might be thinking that a nut key is just a nut key, plain and simple - it's just a piece of metal that dislodges jammed nuts? What else could anybody do to improve that? Quite a lot it seems. The more we got into the design process, the more we realised how much we could improve upon the standard designs. First off we gave it a wide rubber handle to make it easy to hold, so no more skinned knuckles when your hand slips off and rags against the rock. The rubber handle stops the metal digging into your hand when you hit a stuck nut. The rubber handle can also be taken off to use the 17mm wrench, useful for tightening loose bolts. It's made from the finest Sheffield stainless steel, laser cut to a precise shape which tapers down so that you can reach into narrow placements.
