    Details

    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

    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

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    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.

    Great nuts!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    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.

    Variety

      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

      Look at my nuts, they are so tiny

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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.

      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

      Solid Nuts

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      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.

      A double edged sword

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      They seat very securely on uneven rock (where the classic BD stoppers would struggle a bit) and I'd definitely trust my life to them. However, they're a pain in the ass to remove if you've weighted them. Great for knobby rock but be careful.

      DMM IS NUTS

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I really enjoy most of DMM's gear but all of their stoppers are totally bomber. I know guys & girls who will only use DMM's brass offsets and no other offset. Personally I bought the DMM's because of all the excellent reviews and then every time I go climbing someone will make a positive comment on me rocking DMM nuts. So, over all. It just feels right! The only negative thing I've ever heard is, if you take a big fall on them. You might not get it back out of the rock. That's fine with me! I'd rather have it stuck forever than have it fail. Nuts are replaceable.

      Nice Nuts!

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

      I picked these as they were the top rated stoppers in every review I'd read. I now see why. Their design is brilliant as they will self-cam into even the most parallel of cracks and they hold well. I haven't taken a fall on one yet, but I trust that they'll hold.

      Tip: If you are buying a full set, it is about $7 cheaper to but the small set (1-6) and the big set (7-11) separate as opposed to the full set (1-11]. It's not just BC either. Everyone prices them this way.

      They hold!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These nuts are great. I have not used any other nuts but have had friends use them and they say they just fit a little better than other nuts they have used. That being said I have only taken one small fall on them and they held. They are super easy to place and they just fit the wall really nice!

      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.

      Hey , what racking biner would You recommend...

      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 ;)

      Best Answer

      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.

      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.

      Is there a size chart for these, thinking...

      Is there a size chart for these, thinking of getting a set but need to know sizes. thanks!

      You have two choices. You could get 1-6 or all of them. That is why the price range is from 54 - 96 dollars.54 ish for 1-6(sz) of themor96 ish for 1-10(sz)ALL of them!Great deal.(as for the BD comment. Black diamond sells there set for 104 (1-13).
