Despite their simple appearance, Wallnuts are highly featured pieces of climbing hardware. Different alloy is used for each size - smaller Wallnuts are made from a harder alloy to prevent shearing, while larger sizes are softer so they can bite into placements. Larger Wallnuts feature hollow construction to reduce weight.
Wallnuts are the basis on which to build a comprehensive climbing rack. Complemented by other, more specialised pieces of protection, they are guaranteed to be the most regularly used piece of protection on your harness.
- Curved taper gives stable placements and resists lifting out - A Wallnut's curving taper fits a wide variety of cracks in different rock types. Their design creates three points of contact between the nut and rock in a placement, giving stable placements that resist lifting out.
- Allows placement in two orientations for increased versatility - Passive protection can be placed either side or face on, doubling the number of cracks any single piece can protect.
- Grooved faces improve security in irregular rock - Wallnuts and Offsets have a groove machined into their faces, allowing them to sit better in irregular placements and on highly featured rock. This makes them more versatile across different rock types.
- Colour coded for easy size identification - The DMM protection range is colour coded for quick and easy size selection. Colours are co-ordinated across passive and active protection, for quick selection of alternatives if your first choice doesn't fit.
