WINNER - Win a Set of Wild Country Rocks of YOUR choosing Competition

© Wild Country

WINNER: Buccaneerbilly

With two bank holidays under our belt the trad season is well underway; however, after a winter of neglect there's a distinct chance your wires will be in need of replacement. Thankfully Wild Country are here to help as we're giving away a set of one of the following, depending on which you need: 1-10 Rocks, 1-5 Superlight Rocks, 5-10 Superlight Offset Rocks.

Wild Country is one of the original creators of passive protections with its Classic Rocks. Continuing to innovate with more versatile and lightweight protection options, the Wild Country passive protection range covers all manners of sizes and shapes, keeping you safe in summer and winter whether you're fiddling a tiny Rock in to thin crack or wedging in a Rockcentric the size of your fist.

Rocks

The rock with its curved sides is a Wild Country original and revolutionised how we protect routes.

Still the backbone of any good rack, the current incarnation is considerably more advanced than its predecessor and significantly lighter as well. Keeping the original groundbreaking curve, rocks now come with thinner, lighter sidewalls, a lateral side taper, anodised heads for quick selection and an extended range – with fourteen sizes in all.

Revolutionary when launched and still turning heads, the fully featured rocks range is the benchmark for the modern climber.

  • Tapered sides
  • Anodised colour coding
  • Lighter, thinner sidewalls
  • Fit cracks 7mm to 50mm
  • Available in sets 1-8 and 9-14

Pricing:

  • Rock set 1-10 £75

Superlight Rocks

Superlight rocks are essential gear for anyone wanting to climb lighter and faster without compromise. Slim, light, flexible, and supremely agile in tight spots, these single wired beauties push all the buttons as the perfect tool to complete any serious rack.

In six sizes, with curved and tapered sides, they give any rack more bite for very, very little weight. Matched with new Superlight Offset Rocks they make the perfect trad set.

  • 7075 alloy for easier removal
  • Single wire
  • Colour coded anodising
  • Tapered sides
  • Available in set 1-6

Pricing:

  • Set 1-6 £65

Superlight Offset Rocks

Less is more. Subtle, superlight and secure, Superlight Offset Rocks are by far the lightest passive pro per size in the world. Simple, yet incredibly effective, they combine the proven curve of Rocks with a radical side taper that adds a new dimension to protection.

Intuitive and easy to place, they're perfect for trimming a rack without cutting down options. An instant classic, and a big hit with our testers, all that's missing from these slimline superstars is weight.

  • Offset tapered sides
  • 6 sizes
  • Thinner wire
  • 7075 alloy for easier removal
  • Classic Wild Country curve
  • Colour coded anodizing
  • Available in set 5-10

Pricing:

  • Set 5-10 £55
