The Black Diamond Wired Hexentrics provide versatile, traditional passive protection for wide cracks.

- REI

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. This set comes with Black Diamond Hexes #4 through #10. SET INCLUDES BLACK DIAMOND OVALWIRE CARABINER.

Classic, simple, lightweight, functional pro, Black Diamond's Wired Hexentrics 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.
