A versatile, lightweight and cost effective solution for protecting large cracks and breaks.
The development of the Wild Country Rockcentric has totally revived the popularity of the climbing hex. Suitable for all climbers from beginners, looking for a budget alternative to cams, to mountaineers wanting light and simple pro for larger placements. The key to its success lies with the ultra hollow T6 alloy head and pronounced dual 'rocker' profile. Two of the Rockcentric's four placement methods employ the 'rockers' creating a camming action that significantly improves holding power. The clever side cut improves seating in flared cracks, while colour coded heads and slings make selection a breeze. Finished with long, flexible Dyneema slings that reduce quickdraw usage and prevent placements lifting out and.
Wild Country rocks are a great addition to any rack – even if you carry cambs. As to the debate as to quick draw or not to quick draw it depends on the circumstances – I carry my WCRs usually 6, 7, and 8 on one crab and decide at the time whether to extend or not . If you have not got a set get one they are great useful in all sorts of situations – if necessary can be used as a sling.
