Small flared placements can be dealt with very effectively; providing of course you've got some DMM Peenuts on your rack. These offset and tapered nuts are worth their weight in gold on granite and slate. They allow a bigger area of surface contact than the smaller brass micro nuts. This means that the energy generated in a fall is spread out and the rock is less likely to break. If you climb on quarried rock a lot this type of nut really comes into its own. Nothing fits those flared peg scars like a set of Peenuts.
This five-set of DMM Peenuts should be on your rack every time you cast off on an ultra-thin aid or sketchy trad pitch. Their color-coded anodized heads make it easy to select the right size, and slightly tapered heads increase security in flaring cracks. These little guys fit perfectly in pin scars, tiny seams, and that little pocket on your project that doesn't quite fit your fingers.
A classic piece of passive pro, the Peenut is a small wedge for small cracks.
If you find yourself looking at tiny flared cracks, you are going to wish you had DMM's Peenuts on your rack. Being both offset and tapered, these nuts place easily, give maximum surface contact, and work extremely well on soft rock. By spreading out the fall impact across a larger area, they reduce the chance of breaking the rock and losing your placement.
