Rock Climbing > Hardware > Passive Nuts and Hexes
Building a rack of passive gear
Lead climbers need to have a wide range of gear to cope with the type of fissures in the rock of choice and avoid running out of gear half way up !

Passive protection comes in three basic sizes: Micros (for very small cracks), Nuts (for most common cracks up to finger width) and Hexes and passive camming devices for bigger cracks and pockets up to fist width.

A nut remover tool is an essential item - useful for opening beer bottles as well as cleaning difficult gear placements.

Anodised nuts last longer and are easier to identify but the harder surface doesn't bite so easily into the rock crystals. Both types have their fans and a selection is usually best.

WHY TWO SET OF NUMBERS ?
Zero G realised their nuts were numbered very differently from others on the market so decided at the end of 2009 to renumber their sets and designate the two smallest sizes as micronuts (0.25 and 0.5.) This wont worry you if you are buying a new set but if you are replacing (part of) an older set make sure tou order the replacement based on the original number and not the New Size listed. Yes, we know its complicated - if you need any help to work it out, just give as a ring or use the colours as your guide as these did not change.

Curve sided hollow head large wire.

A range of 11 complimentary sizes. Anodized head and numbered on the swage for easy recognition on your harness.

This set include the micro nuts 0.25 and 0.5 and is therefore the same range of sizes as the original 1-11 set.
