    Protects the funky stuff.

    Thanks to their unique shape, DMM Alloy Offsets fit securely in flaring cracks where other forms of protection would be hard-pressed to hold your chalk bag let alone handle a big whipper. The anodized aluminum allows quick and easy selection, so you grab the right piece when you're placing from a bad stance. Ideal for hard-to-protect trad pitches and aid routes alike, the DMM Alloy Offsets get the job done when nothing else will do.

    Didn't know I needed them

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Every placement I've always wanted but haven't been able to use was because I didn't have these. Now between these and the Wallnuts, no constriction is unprotectable. I never knew I needed these until I got them and protected three straight routes using only these and a few cams. You'll be amazed at how much use they get, especially in granite.

    Coming back again and again

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Had to replace this one in the yellow size since I chucked it off The Nose of El Cap. I really wish I hadn't as this size was mega useful pitches later.

    Can't beat 'em

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These offsets are absolutely invaluable and should be a mainstay on anyones rack; especially if you climb granite. I've taken these things all over the US and whipped on many of them many times. They are bomber to wing on, hold up to tons of abuse, and feel oh so good when other nuts won't slot well.

    I don't really carry the larger two (gray and light blue) much, but they are nice for certain areas.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you climb on any type of granite you should have these on your rack! No Buts! I use these guys everywhere, and when you can't get that regular nut to stick in the placement these nuts will be bomber!

    Saved my bacon

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Had a micro cam in a marginal placement underneath of roof knew the odds of that cam catching me were slim to none. Just then my foot slips I peel off the route the cam pops and the DMM taper the next piece 10 ft below me catches the fall. I managed to place one of these on every route I lead never go anywhere without them.

    No butts no coconuts

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Great as supplementary pieces or just double up. Primary use has them deployed in flaring cracks or odd misshapen slots.

    Best Nuts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    They really are awesome pieces of pro. I find my self reaching for these before any other nuts that I have. They fit where nothing else will.

    My Go To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I was raised on cams; I absolutely love them. For the longest time I didn't understand why I would even bring stoppers with me, until I placed these. These are now integral to my rack and I reach for them a lot; great for anchors, flaring cracks, and pin scars. Their divots catch really well in irregularities and shape make them great for, just about everything else. I use these and the DMM peenuts for a set of stoppers that can't be beat.

    First Passive Pro I Reach For

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Hands down these are my favorite pieces of passive pro that I own. Any time I opt against placing a cam, the first thing I reach for is my DMM offsets over a set of regular stoppers. I still bring both with me on certain climbs but The ease of placing and cleaning the Offsets are far better than other stoppers I have.

    Flaring Cracks:
    On flaring cracks I can place these and know that I won't have to fight to get them out. Just a nice little poke with the good ole nut tool and they'll effortlessly come out.

    I love these for anchors on multipitch. The only thing that makes me hesitant about using them as my anchors is that I don't get them back for the next pitch.

    These come in the bigger sizes from a #7-11 My #9 and #10 are probably my favorite two sizes. I like the bigger sizing as I'm a big more comfortable taking a fall on these versus some of the smaller stoppers I have.

    Red Rocks:
    I was stoked when I say a few climbers down in Red Rocks that were in their mid-70's and have had their DMM Offsets for years and were well used and still going strong.

    Add these to your rack or if you're just building a trad rack, make these your first purchase for passive pro.

      The DMM Alloy Offsets are super handy in pin scars and irregular sized cracks. These are great budget option if you have not yet sprung for the Metolius Offset Master Cams. I carry both on my rack and use them for protecting flared cracks while free climbing as well as aid. The bottom line is that these are a solid, cost effective, peace of mind assuring piece of pro. Great in Zion, Yosemite, Cochamo, or any where else you may find flared cracks or pin scars. Get some!

      Proven to be the best

        While it always depends where you climb or the kind of rock you climb, Offsets, originally by Hugh Banner now reproduced by DMM, fit the majority of natural or man-made bottlenecks I come across in JTree, Yosemite, Needles and sandstone.

        I have two sets because I find more placements for them than the rest of my rack except for parallel cracks of course.

        DMM Alloy Offsets

          I was so glad to see these nuts come back on the market in 2008. The aluminum offsets are invaluable on desert sandstone climbs. They are an important part of the rack on most Zion aid walls, making an otherwise sketchy placement bomber. They're also great on free climbs, and often replace stoppers/rocks for me. I'm surprised by how much even the largest size is useful. The anodized color coding is a nice touch too.

          flared crack and pin scar safety net

            One of the best pieces of gear on the planet, these are always on my rack. Aid climbing, free climbing, you can't leave these at home. I think I could climb moonlight buttress with a triple set of these. Get them and be converted!

            Pin scars? These are what you need.

              The time tested aluminum offset is back, and DMM does a great job. It's amazing how well these things seat into pin scars - they fit so well, it almost takes a bit of fun out of aid pitches because they make it so easy. But I'm not complaining. I've also been throwing them on the rack for free climbing. Basically, anywhere you see a pin scar, these babies will give you a bomber placement.
