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.
