With a transverse taper that sits better in old scars, Micro Stoppers (swedges) from Black Diamond remain one of the best small-size additions to a set of Stoppers. The copper/steel combination bites for extra holding power and is just the right blend for durability. Individually tested.

For ascending ultra-thin, gear protected crack and face lines, Micro Stoppers are an essential tool. Black Diamond makes the head of each with durable copper infiltrated iron, giving it a tenacious bite while reducing shearing. A patented, swaging method replaces traditional silver solder techniques, greatly increasing cable life by making Micro Stoppers less prone to fraying after repeated use. Excellent for building that equalized rats nest just before you punch it to the next distant placement.
