The DMM Wallnut Set is the bread and butter of your trad rack.

Rack up with the DMM Wallnut Set on your next trad climbing trip, and they'll amaze you with their easy selection and solid placement. Their color-coded anodized heads help you pick the right size the first time, so you can quickly slot the nut in a bomber constriction and move on before the pump clock starts ticking. Wallnuts also have a curved taper with a vertical concave slot to help them seat solidly in strangely shaped cracks.
  • Wallnuts are stoppers favored by elite trad climbers
  • Harder alloy heads prevent shearing
  • Larger sizes are slightly softer to better bite in placements
  • Tapered face and sides place better in cracks
  • Color-coordinated sizing for finding the right piece faster
  • Item #DMM0010

They work!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

The green nut caught a ~160 lb friend on a 20 foot (total) fall yesterday. I had to hard catch for topographical reasons, thus putting even more energy into the piece. It's a tiny little nut. He thought it was going to pop, I thought it was going to pop. It didn't pop. This minuscule piece of aluminum honestly may have prevented a serious injury. I've been carrying these around for a while. They are very light and definitely a must have for runout trad leads. Cams don't fit everything! I was waiting to see how they hold a whipper to write a review. Today is the day, I guess. While a minority, there are some climbs that I would rather have these for than cams. If you are building a rack, they are well worth the money.

Dmm nuts hands down

Nobody makes better nuts than dmm. Dmm walnuts slot and stick in nearly any crack better than their competitors. I have protected countless climbs using only wallnuts and it went fine because these things are BOMBER.

DMM Wallnuts !

Despite their simple appearance, Wallnuts are highly featured pieces of climbing hardware. Different alloy is used for each size - smaller Wallnuts are made from a harder alloy to prevent shearing, while larger sizes are softer so they can bite into placements. Larger Wallnuts feature hollow construction to reduce weight. Wallnuts can be placed in two different orientations, allowing a single nut to cover a range of cracks. They are tapered across both their face and sides, helping them sit better in cracks that are rarely parallel sided. Grooved faces reduce weight, help the nut seat better in cracks, improve security in shallow placements, and resist lifting out when a leader moves past them. Wallnuts are mounted on wires that are stiff enough to allow overhead placements, while flexible enough to reduce the chance of lifting out. They are colour coded to correspond with the rest of our protection range, and to give quick and easy selection of the correct size from your harness. Wallnuts are the basis on which to build a comprehensive climbing rack. Complemented by other, more specialised pieces of protection, they are guaranteed to be the most regularly used piece of protection on your harness.

How can these be better? They just seem to always slide into place. I’ve had a few on my rack for a while and finally sprang for the whole set. I’m a happy man.

The best passive gear out there

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I have been taking these with me on every trad climb since I purchased them over three years ago. From Yosemite granite to desert sandstone to funky Quartzite placement, these have always been bomber. The groove in the center is great for inconsistencies or crystals inside the cracks, and even after taking multiple falls I have never fixed one. The slight taper when placed sideways allows them to fit perfectly in flared granite placements (I made it through an entire season climbing in Tuolumne without ever wishing I had offsets) and the wires have stood up to significant abuse without developing any kinks or other signs of wear. Whenever I am climbing with a partner who has their own gear, i always insist on bringing these over anything else.

My favorite piece

I love the variety this package includes! The small ones can fit in bigger pin scars while the larger ones are great for big splitters. The grooves in the nuts are also a bonus for making weird placements feel more secure I find i consistently use the Silver-Red sizes, so stock up on those bad boys!

AWESOME!!!

I love these. They seems to be built much better than other brands and are really solid. Their shape seems to also do a really good job of locking into constrictions and they don’t get stuck too often. They’re heavy like all nuts, but the larger ones being hollowed is really nice.

A staple in nuts

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

My first set of nuts were Omega Pacifics, once I got my hands on these wallnuts, I knew I had to switch. The curvature and design is bar to none. They are pretty damn heavy though, so I usually split them between large and small and only take them when they look like they are needed.

Great nuts!

Got these for my starter trad rack. I have yet to take any falls on them, but they place well and give me confidence that if I did fall on them, they'd hold. I place the smallest two sizes pretty frequently and feel great climbing above them knowing that they're rated to 7 and 9 kn, respectively.

Light and Versatile

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

These set of nuts are a great set for starting to build your rack. They seem light and versitile and i use them in combination with some offsets and a couple smaller brass stoppers. Being new to trad I can't say that I've put them through any sort of heavy loaded falls, but when I get a good placement, the walnuts always seem to find a good fit, I feel confident in moving up the climb.

Why I use nuts? There is somewhat satisfying feeling of watching your 2nd struggle to clean a well placed nut, because had you taken a whipper, that nut would have totally saved your life.

My go-to protection

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Wallnuts are simply fantastic. If you're thinking about getting BD's, spend the extra $3 and get a set of these. You won't be disappointed. The design is much better due to the extra curvature and grooves. They sit much better in a lot of placements, but if the groove catches on something, you will not be able to remove it by yanking it up. Doing so will only kink the wire, so use the nut tool if you can't get it out after a yank. Also, these are rated to higher forces than the BD's and the wires are stiffer in the larger sizes so they don't flop around. But the best part about these is the instant security and relief you feel from clipping in to one. Nothing compares to a bomber Wallnut.

I have the full range of 1-11 and love them more than my BD stoppers. I trust them more than cams in a lot of situations. Great passive gear for a reasonable price tag!

Great addition to your rack

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

These are a great addition to your rack, for just over a hundred bucks you can add 11 new pieces, and maybe 7 of those will get used all the time. I have only placed the smallest sizes a handful of times, but all the medium to larger sizes are super useful. Also I really like the small groove in the nut, I feel it helps to get extra secure placements in funky cracks

Great set of nuts and a necessary addition to any rack. The slotted design makes them a bit for versatile than other sets. Feel damn solid when you slot one nicely. Get 'em.

Why does the 1-11 set cost more than the 1-6 and 7-11 sets combined? Shouldn't it cost the same or less, since we're buying more?

Hey Catherine, I can't answer as to the pricing on the item, but I can definitely tell you that I absolutely *love* these pieces! They're great. Shoot me an e-mail or give me a call if you have any other questions. Ben 801-746-7564 brabinowitz@backcountry.com

Hey , what racking biner would You recommend for those puppies ? I was thinking about Black Diamond OvalWire Carabiner but it has notched wire gate and its heavier than any wire gate biner for egz CAMP USA Orbit Wire which is cheaper. I wanted to take two biners to go with DMM Wallnuts - bigger sizes on one and smaller sizes on the other. Also I wanted to buy a racking biner for tricams. What do You think? Is it better to buy lighter but a bit smaller biners for racking stoppers? Or maybe with keylock? - som say that notched gate prevents of losing stoppers ;)

Although I have BD stoppers, I really like my setup of 1 Dynotron for larger nuts and 1 Nitron for smaller nuts. Both biners are large, keylock, and have bright and distinctive colors. I don't like the way ovals sit on my rack, and find that as long as you have fewer than 7 nuts on a biner, they sit nicely on D's. You do have to be somewhat careful to keep them from falling off while placing them, but this happens even with notched gates, and i think the convenience of smooth operation is worth this extra diligence. I rack Tricams all on a single orbit keylock. It is more important to have your tricam biner be keylock than your Wallnut biners, because the only thing that the webbing wants to do is get caught in the notch. Tricams are funky enough as it is.

Mike, I'm doing something similar to how you would do it. I've got a set of 1-11 Wallnuts racked on 3 wiregate carabiners (for small, medium and large nuts). I'm not too fussed by the carabiners themselves, and have BD Neutrinos and DMM Phantoms (v light). I like the conventional shape of these carabiners for racking, and have never considered an oval. Basically an average wiregate is enough, so just get a cheap one from a decent brand that isn't excessively heavy. A non-clean nose is probably quite handy for not losing nuts, but can be quite annoying when you want to get a nut off the racking biner. I don't worry too much about losing nuts off my biner to choose between clean/non-clean noses. However, I've lost a biner of nuts, because the biner itself didn't clip on cleanly to a friend's harness (carrying lots of gear)... subtle difference there.

I rack evens on one DMM Shadow and odds on another DMM Shadow. This way if I accidentally drop one set I still have a range of nuts instead of large or small.

Got a question: Is it better to take 1 - 6 set and for egz double it and for bigger cracks - the cams? Or to take full set of 1 - 11 ? Are those bigger ones are useful and easy to handle?

Depends on where you are climbing, the types of routes/difficulty, personal preference and skill. The larger sizes are certainly useful. You may find that a whole rack of these is useful and then double up on the sizes that are used the most in your climbing. And leave behind sizes that never get used.
