Description

The biner that started the wiregate revolution, the redesigned Black Diamond HotWire carabiner is an integral part of any climber's rack, even now, more than 20 years after its creation.

Its versatile size and large rope-bearing surface make it ideal for everything from after-work sport cragging to big-wall free climbing and long alpine ice routes. These carabiners feature minor cosmetic flaws that in no way affect the use or safety of the carabiner, typically the anodization is a little off color.

  • Cold-forged construction
  • Nose shroud to help prevent accidental gate opening
  • Large rope-bearing surface
  • Lightweight and versatile size for all-around use
  • Does not freeze up in alpine conditions
  • Available in single colors

HotWire Carabiner 2nd is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect carabiner In these times of ever shrinking carabiners, I have to say this is still my favorite clip for trad climbing. Its a touch lighter than the neutrino, and has the nice gate shield to reduce snagging on wires and hangers and such. Bust most of all, its not too dainty that my fingers get stuck in the gate opening, a big problem with lots of the newer ultralight clips on the market today. Also, it has enough metal in the basket part fo the carabiner that it wont wear out a rope groove after a couple of lower-offs from a long route.
