Nuts and Stoppers

Rock protection starts with the humble nut/chock/wire. We have chosen product ranges from companies that we know and trust, to give the highest levels of safety and product quality. Our range comes from industry leaders DMM, Wild Country and Black Diamond. Only the finest nuts for you!

The basis for any trad rack is a good set of nuts. If you're building a new rack or making significant additions, check out our Pack Deals page too.

We use and recommend DMM Wallnut sets. The Wallnut is DMM's workhorse nut. These all have curved faces which allow better seating in each placement, and a high degree of cam, so that the nut effectively expands in size and bites further into the rock when loaded. In the normal range of nuts hollowed out and tear-dropped faces allow improved placement between edges of rock, and tapered sides allow good protection in slightly outward flaring cracks. Sizes 7, 8, 9 10 and 11 are all extruded for excellent lightness. They also come in tiny micro sizes for those thinly protected pitches! Certain members of staff (who shall remain nameless) tell harrowing tales of falling onto them from great and probably exaggerated heights, and being both alive and pleasantly surprised afterwards. We also have DMM Offset nuts, shaped using the old and much loved HB Offset designs.

Wild Country Rocks also come in sets (a larger and smaller set at either end of the nut size range), and are slighty longer and more square than Wallnuts, lacking the hollowed out areas. This makes them seat better in some types of rock and less well in others, although Rocks seem to get jammed in place less often than Wallnuts. The sizes go up to the monster size 14, which is the size of a decent hex. The colour anodising on Wild Country and DMM nuts follow the same scheme, so you can use both in the same rack without getting confused. Both Rocks and Wallnuts are available in sigle sizes as well, for doubling up on your favourites of replacing lost kit.

Wild Country also provide us with Superlight Rocks. These are suberbly light on a single wire only, but well rated, and a favourite with Alpinists. We've also got DMM Peenuts, which are even more tapered nuts that complement the Wallnut and come in a range of 5 sizes. They're anodised to match the smaller Wallnuts and taper on all sides, a must for people climbing Cairngorm granite and other areas that have regular outward flaring cracks. Also covering the smaller end of the wire spectrum we have the excellent Swedges or Micro Stoppers from Black Diamond, and the utterly gorgeous DMM Brass Offsets and Brass IMPs. These little wires are extremely narrow and tapered, similar in size to RPs. They are also stronger then you would expect for their size, and a godsend whan nothing else will go in!

On the other end of the protection-chunkiness spectrum there is the Wild Country Rockcentrics, which are a curved evolution of the well-favoured Hex. The main refinements are the curved faces, which further improve camming, the side taper for flaring placements, and a vast reduction in weight, and colour coding aided by coloured dyneema slings. Now also fully anodised, matching Rocks and Wallnuts in the smaller sizes, and Friends and DMM Cams in the bigger sizes. Mmm, nice big Rockcentrics in fist-sized cracks... Protection-tastic!

Now stocked at Up and Under is the Torque Nut from DMM. These are designed to work in a similar fashion to Rockcentrics meaning they can be placed passively at a constriction or cammed into place thanks to their offset edges. Additionally they are racked on extendable dyneema allowing the nuts to be neatly stowed on your harness and then extended when placed, eliminating then need for extra quickdraws. Four sizes are available covering a very wide range of large cracks. Also available as a set of 4.
