The Black Diamond Wired Hexentrics are a range of timeless, simple, lightweight and versatile climbing protection.
Introduced way back in 1971, the Black Diamond Wired Hexentrics have become a timeless form of pro, retaining their relevance as the most versatile inexpensive, functional protection available to climbers. Their unique hexagonal design allows a Hexentric to fit four different crack configurations and allows them to shine in rapidly widening cracks where cams might walk out. This means that a climbing hex has a comparable range to a similarly sized camming unit but is lighter and doesn't cost a king's ransom. Extremely easy to place a Hex can provide surprisingly reassuring placements in climbing terrain where other camming devices fall short.
With a subtly asymmetrical cross-section, flat sides and slight end-wise taper, they offer three different widths when turned on their axes and another when placed end-wise. Easy to rack and place in bottlenecks, Hexes come equipped with durable, galvanized steel cables.
