      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

I think in a small space where youd be taking advantage of the smallest of the three pieces, the back two pieces would be bulky and useless and might make the chock itself too large to fit into a slot. If there was a way to remove/re-arrange these 3 pieces on the wire, it might make sense.

 

If you can fit the largest cylinder back in the crack behind the constriction, and it wont come out with a pull, the two smaller pieces are useless anyway.

Kinda makes one wish they were arranged the other way with the little one on top so you could just slide the bigger pieces down the wire to reach the smaller cracks.

 

An argument could also be made that the extra weight isn't worth the extra versatility cause you still need the same number of pieces to protect the route. Of course I don't know what these guys weight.

 

I've got a couple of Viamont's wired tricams that are kinda neat, don't use em too much still though.

Back in the day, I new some old dudes that would sling two sizes of camble wedges or chinard stoppers on the same cord for apine climbs so one sling could be used for a wider range of placements. and indead the smaller nut was on top. The large nut would be slid down near the biner when using the smaller nut. Using two nuts in this manner also allowed for a third wider placement where the nuts could be stacked with the upper small nut bent over in the upside down stacked position.

I'm trying to imagine a situation where those things would be useful, but my hangedovered brain isn't working well enough
