Evolved from a lineage that began with the Crack'n-up and went through the Beak, the new Peckers #1, #2 and #3 are the latest additions of thin-aid tools. Ideal for clean aid when speedy intermediary moves are necessary between sinker placements, any of the Peckers can be hand-set and cleaned quickly. When micro nailing, their double-tapered, thin, serrated blades hold solid especially in softer rock. A new, swaged cable lifts out of the way when pounding the eyes during removal. Their three sizes provide an optimal fit during placements, meaning you won't have to stack as much. The largest size also works well in the mixed medium, offering additional options on mixed lines when small cracks or frozen turf are nature's only offerings. Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is non-returnable. Please call us toll free at 877-236-8428 or e-mail with any questions.


Black Diamond's Pecker comes in three sizes to fit microscopic cracks in the rock. THE piece you need for those long, thin Big Wall cracks, serrated teeth and an arch-back design give maximum flexibility for whatever you come up against on the big climb.
