Black Diamond
ANGLE Pitons

Angles span the range from tips to hands and can be placed in pods or pockets within a crack when an ALIEN or C3 just won't fit securely. Today it's also customary to carry an assortment of full length and "sawed off" angles on specific aid routes for hand placing in old piton scars. On new aid lines an ANGLE can be hammered into a shallow crack and then tied off to reduce leverage and provide more security than a wobbly nut or cam. Do practice "constructive scaring" (hammering upward while cleaning) which will increase the possibility of using a nut or cam on subsequent ascents. Made in USA.
