For the slim and grim. Invented in 1987 by John Middendorf and originally brought tomarket as Lowe Balls, these have become the secret weapon of many aid and tradclimbers. These little wonders will work in small parallel-sided cracks where the onlyother option is pounding a piton. Ball Nuts also work in pin scars and small flares whereeven modern micro cams simply won't fit. Since they weigh so little, many advanced tradclimbers keep a #2 and #3 on their rack at all times.

Features

  • The smallest active protection in the world!
  • Color-coded for fast identification
  • Narrow depth fits shallower cracks than traditional camming units
