Chouinard Drilled Hexcentrics

Chouinard factory drilled hexes from 1978. Sizes #7 through #11 were drilled out to save weight when the hexes were still “thick walled”. The next design changed to a “thinner walled” stock and made them relatively light without drilling them out.

Vertical Archaeology also has the do-it-yourself drilling template offered for the 1975 through 1977 solid Hexes.

      Great! They are fun links to the “not so distant” past. I still take mine out and use them occasionally. I miss the sound of them clanking and chiming out at the crags. Sling yours with new cord and climb on!
