Use the 3-pronged Black Diamond Talon hook for direct aid climbing.


The Black Diamond Talon is three hooks in one. This amazing hooking option is suited for big wallers and those bolting on lead. The Talon's dual-base design provides exceptional stability. Since the rock will often break under pressure of a hook before the hook pops, it's important to maximize hook-to-rock contact area. The tripod design provides optimal hook-to-rock contact. Flat, chiseled points offer exceptional bite in rock. Each blade has a different dimension, offering hook placements from bat-hook (3/16in) size to half-inch. -Vendor
