Protects the funky stuff.

The DMM Alloy Offsets are super handy in pin scars and irregular sized cracks. These are great budget option if you have not yet sprung for the Metolius Offset Master Cams. I carry both on my rack and use them for protecting flared cracks while free climbing as well as aid. The bottom line is that these are a solid, cost effective, peace of mind assuring piece of pro. Great in Zion, Yosemite, Cochamo, or any where else you may find flared cracks or pin scars. Get some!
Proven to be the best
While it always depends where you climb or the kind of rock you climb, Offsets, originally by Hugh Banner now reproduced by DMM, fit the majority of natural or man-made bottlenecks I come across in JTree, Yosemite, Needles and sandstone.
I have two sets because I find more placements for them than the rest of my rack except for parallel cracks of course.
DMM Alloy Offsets
I was so glad to see these nuts come back on the market in 2008. The aluminum offsets are invaluable on desert sandstone climbs. They are an important part of the rack on most Zion aid walls, making an otherwise sketchy placement bomber. They're also great on free climbs, and often replace stoppers/rocks for me. I'm surprised by how much even the largest size is useful. The anodized color coding is a nice touch too.
flared crack and pin scar safety net
One of the best pieces of gear on the planet, these are always on my rack. Aid climbing, free climbing, you can't leave these at home. I think I could climb moonlight buttress with a triple set of these. Get them and be converted!
Pin scars? These are what you need.
The time tested aluminum offset is back, and DMM does a great job. It's amazing how well these things seat into pin scars - they fit so well, it almost takes a bit of fun out of aid pitches because they make it so easy. But I'm not complaining. I've also been throwing them on the rack for free climbing. Basically, anywhere you see a pin scar, these babies will give you a bomber placement.
