Whether you're attempting to free a thin crack line or you're racking up for a hard aid route, make sure you don't leave the ground without the Trango BallNutz Set #1-5 clipped to your harness. The sliding ball and ramp design allows you to protect thin parallel-sided cracks and flares that would otherwise require you to hammer in a pin.
Trango BallNutz Protection Ball Nutz by Trango are thin crack protection at its finest. Using a sliding ball/ramp concept, Ball Nutz will protect parallel sided cracks, flares, pin scars and bombays from 3 mm to 16 mm. The three smallest sizes have a 2:1 expansion range, resulting in unmatched security in chossy rock or expanding flakes. The # 4 and # 5 sizes will make you wonder why you ever used tiny cams. While these units are excellent for clean aid (they were even used for the first clean ascent of the Shield), they're also terrific for protecting free climbs. Because of the stiff cable, we recommend using a quick draw whenever Ball Nutz are used to protect free climbing.
