The Ball Nuts from C.A.M.P. are the smallest active protection in the world! Great for rock climbing and aid climbing; these Ball Nuts are color-coded for fast, easy identification. Invented in 1987 by John Middendorf and originally brought to market as Lowe Balls, these have become the secret weapon of many aid and trad climbers. These little wonders will work in small parallel-sided cracks where the only other option is pounding a piton. Ball Nuts also work in pin scars and small flares where cams simply won’t fit.

      Comments about Ball Nuts:

      I used # 1 and # 2 just before the crux of a root (weight was distributed evenly), and was caught nicely when I fell from the height no more than 2 meters above the protection. The second could collect them without problem, but cannot say anything about how hard it is to collect if I fell higher than 2 meters from a single protection point. I have not fallen on #3 to #5 so far, so cannot tell anything.
