The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
Trango Chosckstones feature a classic curved design and a stability groove to wrap around small crystals and bumps, providing exceptionally secure placements. They also utilize our innovative bi-color system to ease size selection. These improvements on a time tested design make placing bomber nuts fast and simple.
