Stoppers for splitters.
You'll find the DMM Torque Nut Package surprisingly versatile regardless of the trad route you're climbing. These large camming units feature a unique shape that allows you place it in a camming position as well as a passive placement. Unlike any stopper, you can place the Torque in splitters with a simple twist, and they still make bomber stoppers in pinches and horizontals. DMM added an extendable Dyneema sling to each piece, so you can leave the alpine draws at home.

- Q & A
Use them on every climb
Great pieces. I find myself using at least one on every climb I do. The geometry is nice and you have a wide range of placement options and the extendable slings lets you save draws in some cases. They're roughly equivalent to the same color C4, Friend and Dragon so they're a an easy way to double up on some of the larger sizes of cams without having to shell out a lot of money
These are the large hexes to get
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I came across a blue torque nut on someone's bail and claimed it for my rack. I ended up using it on every climb! It seats amazingly in the rock and seems to sit better than wild country, or the straight-edged BD hexes. I tend to use it in it's 'flatter' placement.
The extendable sling is a cool idea, clean for racking. But half the time I clip the other loop and try to pull it through, only to have the loop with the bar-tacking get stuck against the nut. That's my only pet-peeve.
New Age Hex Old School Feeling
Alas, a reform to the age old and time tested Cow Bells. The highly designed and more dynamic lock these bad boys provide have me reaching for them more than i had with my old hexagonal chocks!
They torque nicely in place, even in pretty much parallel sided cracks, and they hold! great for building anchors on alpine routes when you want to keep the weight down.
