Premier Sponsor:


Frost SENTINEL NUTS Simple, subtle and secure. Emerging from the birth of the clean climbing era and decades of nut design (Stoppers, Hexes) Frost has reintroduced the straight sided tapered SENTINEL NUT. Key to both its holding power and cleaning ease are the relatively long faces which provide greater surface area contact without the "hang ups" inherent in curved nut designs. Almost invisible is an endwise taper which will seat nicely in moderate flares and pin scars. SENTINELS size grading allows 3 nuts to cover the range normally requiring 4. Available with either 8" or 12" stainless steel wire slings for aid, mixed and free climbing - save a quick draw & biner. Color coded.

Sentinel Nuts 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: roghman, 2008-02-19

I love these nuts! Tom gave a set to my old man and he handed them down to me when I started placing gear. Dont think I'll buy any other nuts except for maybe some more BD stoppers.

Tom made me a set for Christmas, the coolest part was he hand delivered them to me. The long slings are awesome (flexible to resist walking out, but stiff enough to place easily), and they clean like nothing else- super easy to clean. They place easily and are bomber- I'm confident falling on any of them after seeing how Tom makes and tests each individual stopper.

sweet nuts. simple to place because there are no curves and weird shapes, just line up the right size and stick it in! and the long cables are great fun and really work.

Oh My GAWD! This is the best invention since changing headlamps from huge halogen to LEDs. I tried these at Devil's Tower (after switching from nuts to aliens), and now I'm a total nut guy again. I can climb 5.10 again! because these babies give you an extra 13" of reach!!! No more scary moves!! (assuming there is protection within 13"). And I took a fall on a #1 and it held.

Wires can be ordered with wired up to 13" !!!! wires are super stiff and made out of aircraft steel. Bigger nuts are 6061 -t1 and i beleive smaller are 6070 ? Frost seems like a cool cat - when i called to ask about the type of metal he was very helpful. I like the simplicity of placing these and plan to get another set.
