Product Description

CAMP USA Ball Nuts are the only choice for hammerless aid-climbing protection in thin, parallel-sided cracks. When the going gets thin, pull the trigger and place a Ball Nut in a crack as narrow as 3mm. Release the trigger and opposing forces of the brass ball and aluminum nut holds these tiny pieces of protection in place where their 8kN-strength (1798lb-force) is ready to save your hide if you log some air time. Much faster and easier on the rock than banging in a knifeblade, CAMP Ball Nuts are the last word in protecting thin free climbs and saving time on aid-climbing lines.


Range: [1] 3-6mm; [2] 4.5-9mm; [3] 6-12mm; [4] 8-14mm; [5] 10.5-18mm
Strength: 8kN
Weight: 29-73g (depending on unit size)

When I became....
a huge fan was on Arrow Place at Red Rocks using my partners Ball Nut. Better really for aid and granite routes, but we find our purpose for these bad boys in the sandstone at times. A savior at the start of Arrow Place where cacti wait patiently below the crux decking move.
