RPs from Pacific Crossing These tiny brass nuts are the standard micro-nuts for many climbers. Proven over many years to be very effective in tiny cracks, the soft brass gives a good bite and the straight taper trapezoidal shape allows RPs to be placed in two different orientations. The smallest sizes are intended for aid climbing only. SIZE RANGE INCHES WEIGHT GRAMS MFG.

The original Micronut and still the best. I agree that these are best suited for experienced climbers as they are limited in strength compared to larger nuts, however, they do tend to be stronger than equal size nuts by other manufacturers. If you find your self carrying the smallest sizes of standard nuts I highly recommend replacing them with these!

Micro nuts are not for the faint hearted and are more suited to very experienced trad climbers and aid climbers. Stand up on the smallest RP and you`ll know your living. Hear that cable sing as your weight shifts around. Making bomber placements with the very small RPs is an artform. Beware of imitations, the thing to look for in purchasing RPs is to ensure that the cables come out of the brass nut touching each other. There are some small brass nuts around where there is a gap between the cables where they enter the nut, this is not as good as the genuine article. With the cable apart the nut can be torqued out of a less than optimal placement. With the cable together the nut will sit in a much shallower placement. It doesn`t seem like RPs are value for money when you end up with such a tiny piece of pro but believe me when I say that these babies are great. Not for beginners though.
