Brass Offsets


Small but mighty.

Brass Offsets are crucial for protecting small flared cracks, often fitting perfectly where nothing else will go. The brass used for the head of the nut is soft enough to bite into placements, but hard enough to resist deforming and pulling through. Wires are soldered directly into the nut head, allowing a thicker wire to be used and increasing overall strength. The colour coded swage gives easy size selection and allows the Brass Offset to self equalise when loaded, making the most of marginal placements.


Micro protection for small cracks

As climbs become harder, the need to make the most of all available protection increases. Micro protection lets you protect cracks which normal sized pieces would not fit. Having these wires on your rack gives you more options.

Asymmetrical taper gives stable placements in offset cracks

Nuts with an offset taper protect cracks where normal nuts would not sit properly, such as flared cracks and peg scars. Use in combination with normal nuts to find security in almost any crack.

Wires soldered directly into heads for strength

The wires of IMPS and Brass Offsets are soldered directly into their heads. This allows a thicker wire to be used, increasing the strength rating of each nut.

Brass heads for optimal characteristics in marginal placements.

Brass nuts are made from a special blend of brass and silicone that is soft enough to bite into placements, but hard enough to resist pulling through them. This helps them make the most of marginal placements.

Colour coded for easy size identification

The DMM protection range is colour coded for quick and easy size selection. Colours are co-ordinated across passive and active protection, for quick selection of alternatives if your first choice doesn’t fit.

Passive protection works in wet and icy conditions

Passive protection works by jamming in constrictions to prevent falls. It is suitable for use in all conditions. Unlike active protection such as cams, passive protection can be used in wet or icy cracks, where friction is reduced.

Life savers

You can often fit these in when nothing else does. Love them and rarely go on a route without them. Smallest sizes may be more or a confidence booster, but i've bailed and fallen on the larger ones and they worked as you'd want perfectly.

When you need them

Honestly never know how essensial these are till you get a set. Weigh practically nothing and go in so many routes. I try and save them till i need them in lots of cases and they really do make a massive difference. Very bomber when placed in a cluster.

Solid addition to your rack

Excellent gear. Can't pretend I climb hard enough or go up enough pin-scarred routes to use them every day, but where I've used them for pro mid-route, or on a few occasions as part of an anchor, they've been great. Sometimes (reassuringly) trickier to clean, but absolutely worth it.


I don't place these nearly as often as the imps, but they are really useful to have on the rack.

Best flared crack micro

This is ha`nds down the best micro for flared cracks on the market. Mix these in with some IMPs and you are good to go on most routes.
