LiteWire Carabiner

The Black Diamond LiteWire Carabiner comes in a color to match your trad rack of Camalots perfectly. Despite its lighter weight, this carabiner has a larger rope-bearing surface for seasons of long-lasting durability. Black Diamond tweaked the geometry of the nose to facilitate easier clipping and unclipping commonly missing from wire gates.

Good light wire gate

I've put it through the wringer

Good light wire gate of medium size. Use it for alpine draws and racking cams. A bit hard to clip into, so would not recommend using it for sport climbing.

LightWires are legit!

LightWire (regular)

I love these things! Super light, great colors, need a biner? Boom! LightWire biners are there for you. I like using them as prusik & sling biners & for locking the top of my ascender. I recommend the minis for sorting nuts & cams. Highly recommended!
