Available in 11 sizes, these Black Diamond Wired Hexentrics provide traditional passive protection for rapidly widening cracks where cams might walk out.
Black Diamond Big Wall & Protection Wired Hexentric Set #4-10 BD2202350000ALL1. 4-10 racked on an OvalWire carabiner. Classic simple lightweight functional pro Black Diamond Hexes shine in rapidly widening cracks where cams might walk out. With a subtly asymmetrical cross-section flat sides and slight end-wise taper they offer three different widths when turned on their axes and another when placed end-wise. Easy to rack and place in bottlenecks Hexes come equipped with durable galvanized steel cables.
Introduced in 1971, this timeless form of pro has retained its relevance as the most versatile, inexpensive protection available to climbers. Their unique hexagonal design allows a Hexentric to fit four different crack configurations. This means that a Hex has a comparable range to a similarly sized camming unit, but is lighter and doesn't cost a king's ransom. Extremely easy to place, a Hex can provide surprisingly reassuring placements in terrain where other camming devices fall short.
The Black Diamond Wired Hexentric Nut is passive protection for the climb up. Buy just one to complete a set or add a few to double up based on your Climbing preferences. Turn them as needed to Fit just right in whatever nook, crack or cranny you find yourself up against. The galvanized steel cable hangs on tight.
