Features of the Black Diamond Wired Hexentric Nut Versatile, traditional passive pro for wider cracks
You can spend 11 years in the Creek without ever even considering a hex, but get on a long and wandering alpine route and you'll regret the weight and bulkiness of those cams in a hurry. Black Diamond's Wired Hexentrics provide cam-quality protection in widening cracks and weird placements where a cam just won't work, and they weigh about as much as the last breath you took, so you'll hardly even notice them until it's time to place one.
