The Black Diamond Wired Hexentric 5 is a mid-sized piece in the range of timeless, simple, lightweight and versatile climbing protection.
Introduced way back in 1971, this timeless form of pro has retained its 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.
