It's difficult to improve on the superior shape of Wild Country Wired Rocks, used and abused since 1979, the taper in the body of each piece permits Rocks to be placed into a broad variety of cracks. Four smaller sizes provide one the most impressive ranges amongst all slotted chocks.

Wild Country Rock #14 The original Rock design was developed 19 years ago by Mark Vallance and has been refined over the intervening years to create the definitive piece of passive crack protection. The unique shape is engineered to take up the most stable position in any crack, the convex side locking against the two feet' of the concave side, creating a stable triangulation of forces (see inset). Planar side tapers ensure stable side placements and allow you to turn-key' rocks into pockets. The over-barrelled edges and corners together with the use of carefully selected 6064 T6 aluminium extrusions ensure rocks bed' into the crack but can be cleaned' easily. Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is non-returnable. Please call us toll free at 877-236-8428 or e-mail email@example.com with any questions.
Wild Country Rocks Nuts, the original curved nuts, now come in a thinner and lighter profile that doesn't sacrifice strength just to give you a lighter rack on trad climbs. These anodized nuts make for clean organization and quick selection for speedy placements. Tapered sides help each stopper slide into cracks and crevices a lot easier.
Wild Country Anodized Wired Rock 13The original curved nut and probably the best selling piece of pro ever, Wild Country Rocks have had a radical makeover to bring them back to the forefront of technology. As the building blocks of any rack it is imperitive that the form and function of Rocks was as effective as possible, and considering the original design had changed little in 20 years it was felt that it was about time to re-invigorate the designs to make sure they were as cutting edge as the climbers who would utilise them.The parameters of this process were to look at size, shape, weight and performance to see whether and how Wild Country could influence each of these to produce a better product.The solutions they came up with seemed to have really hit the mark and created a wider range of better nuts to carry on the Rock traditon into the 21st century.
