When I started trad climbing I didn’t think there was that much difference between nut sets. So I just got the same brand as my cams.

Turns out there’s quite a few options and a growing number of specialty nuts. And sometimes the wiring can even be more complex than the nuts themselves. In the future we’ll dive more into nut construction but until then, we list all the nuts available on the market today.

Note: For a history of nuts, Stéphane Pennequin’s fabulous Nut Story essay, from the Nut Museum, is a must read along with More Nut Stories).
