    Great for alpine routes

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Bought them for the occasional alpine route a bit scary to place and use at times but also very useful.

    The other half ....

    of the typical choss rack. Both sizes of baby angles....and the 3/4" if things are really going badly are a huge help.

    Better Eat Your Wheaties

    Nothing says fear and climbing like using pitons and pins. From the days when Yvon Chouinard used to make them by hand, not much has changed. These are still essential big wall and alpine climbing gear. From anchors to aid this gear does it all.

    When it Gets Thin...Pound in a Pin.

    If you are into first ascents, or aid climbing, or want to make it back to the ground safely on a big alpine climb, there is no arguing the value of the good old fashioned piton. When I'm heading up a big first ascent in the mountains I like to have a few blades, a few arrows and most importantly a handful of baby angles on the rack. I can't say enough about how useful baby angles are for creating solid rappel anchors, or establishing a bomber piece of whipper catching pro in a funky crack where a solid cam is next to impossible to place. If you need these things....you really need them. If you are doing nail ups on el cap....you really need them...if it is a knife blade crack...you really need them...If you have ever pounded in a pin and heard the pinging singing of a bomber placement placed to the hilt, you know the primal joy of nailing.

    What can I say, it's a piton, pound away until it rings true!

    obscure uses

    The #1 (1/2") angle fits perfectly in a 12mm drilled hole (standard Petzl bit size). Consider carrying one of these, a hammer and a drill along with the rest of your kit for more serious canyoneering routes. Hopefully you'll never need it!

    Best angled pins in the entire world

    Not too much competition out there in this category, but even so, Black Diamond does it best. My only question is: why don't they make sawed off pins too? Hack sawing makes my arm hurt.
