Rated 5 out of 5 by Zach from Indispensable for Aid I have used a rack of these beaks on El Cap and the Fisher Towers. For thin cracks the confidence these inspire is amazing. Super solid in those thin cracks that nothing else will work on. Additionally they are also a superb clean aid piece. A friend of mine took a 20 footer onto a handplaced beak that held and still cleaned quite easily! Highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ben from Aid Confidence. Just climbed 'Beaking in Tongues' in the Fisher Towers. I wouldn't have been possible without multiple sets of these. They work great in thin seams, and add confidence when things are getting sketchy. (I'm not allowed to name the actual product because it's 'inappropriate language' apparently.)
