When you're fearing the approach more than the alpine, it helps to ditch a few trad climbing pieces to keep the weight off your back. Of course you don't want to lose so much gear that you'll practically free solo half the route, but that old, slightly disconcerting cam at the bottom of your pack can probably stay home this time. Cypher's Huevo Alpine Set excludes the smallest stoppers in Huevo's full set to reduce weight and increase the cash in your wallet to buy better trekking boots.

Inexpensive and reliable
These are the first set of nuts I've purchased so I don't have much to compare it to, but so far I've put them to good use! Everything you could expect from a basic chock and a little bit lighter weight. Little bit of an arc to get some camming action in placements, i really like them because I can beat up on them and not think twice about it. Con is that they have trouble setting in any sort of flare so I have been considering a set of offsets to back them up and give me some peace of mind.
