When the approach is long, and the route requires stoppers.
The Neutrino Quickpack includes six of Black Diamond's quickdraws optimized for trad climbing. Sure you could clip bolts with these draws, just like any quickdraw, but Black Diamond focused on making these draws lighter for those long, alpine approaches.
- Pack of six quickdraws made lighter for trad climbing
- I-beam construction keeps carabiners light and strong
- Dynex slings are slim and durable
- Carabiner retainer eases rope-clipping
- Q & A
That gate action though!!!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
These draws are lightweight with good gate action. I bought them for a lighter draw on trad climbs but still use them for my sport climbs as well. I like having long length to help keep rope drag to a minimum.
