Detailed Description

Metolius Rock Climbing Hex

Metolius has dramatically improved upon the classic rock climbing hex design by adding curved faces. This opens up innumerable climbing placement options by allowing the Curve Hex to slide past nubbins and irregularities that would block a traditional, straight-sided rock climbing hex. The curves also allow C.H.s to cam into position by rotating on the convex face and setting up super-stable, 3-point contact with the concave side. Each piece offers four different placement options yielding a range that is similar to a camming unit of comparable size. Curve Hexes are very lightweight and work better than cams in iced up, wet, or dirty cracks, making them indispensable for alpine climbing. C.H.s also make a great starting point for learning the basics of traditionally protected routes. It's easy to judge placement quality and they're a great value at about 1/5 the price of a cam.
