Description

From aid pitches to hard, modern trad routes, the Black Diamond Offset Micro Stopper Set provides essential protection in pin scars, flaring cracks and awkward, misshaped placements. The copper/iron construction provides an optimized amount of bite and holding power in any rock type. The Offset Micro's unique construction relies on a head piece forged onto the cable for increased cable durability.

  • Copper/iron mix in an offset design provides an excellent combination of bite and strength
  • Patented swage is strong, flexible, and less prone to fraying
  • *Sizes 1 and 2 are for direct aid only

Offset Micro Stopper Set #1-6 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Offset for a reason! I brought these guys up a wall in Yosemite and I can't imagine climbing thin C2 without them. I later went up a different wall without them. I used my partners rack with micro stoppers *not offset* and was astounded at how much a difference the taper makes. I resorted to more cam hooks and less pro. The lack of offset micros made the second wall a lot more stressful and a whole lot scarier. Now I own a double rack of offset micros and am looking at a third before my next trip to Zion. I also find myself racking them on PG13 and scarier free climbs, they fit where nothing else does and weigh nothing. There's almost reason not to own a set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fits where other gear doesn't Definitely a specialty tool, but I almost always have them in my pack when I go trad climbing. I usually only place the larger few, but they place well, and hold falls. When you can place them backwards in very featured shallow cracks, they are amazingly bomber, with the fat end locking them into the crack.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comparison to DMM Peenuts Dropping in to point out a few differences between these babies and the DMM Peenuts. First, these have a more aggressive taper, making them better in pin-scars but also more specialized. Second, these cover a greater range. All five Peenuts fit within the range of #4-6 BD Offsets. Pros and cons this this. The smallest 3 BD Offsets (#1-3) are all much smaller than the smallest Peenut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Specialty Piece When the chips are down and nothing else is sticking in a placement, BD's Offset Micro Stoppers will be your best friends. I used HB offsets for years and love them. BD's offsets are just as good or better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pin scars and flares A double set of these is a must have for a clean aid rack. They fit where nothing else will. They are so light there's no reason not to carry them, especially the small ones.
