Black Diamond Wired Hexentric
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Black Diamond Wired Hexentrics provide versatile, traditional passive protection for wide cracks.
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.
Wired Hexes No. 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.
Versatile, lightweight, passive protection.. . . Asymmetric hexagonal design allows one hex to fit four different crack configurations. Great for constricting cracks and pockety walls. Thin cable works great in extremely bottlenecked placements and provides superior durability.
