The biner that started the wiregate revolution, the new and improved Black Diamond HotWire carabiner is an integral part of any climber's rack. At home on either end of a quickdraw, racking cams or on alpine slings, the HotWire excels as a multi-use wire gate carabiner. With updated geometry and a hot-forged construction – which removes weight where it's not needed and adds material where durability is key – the updated HotWire has a deeper basket for better clipping, while the hinge-end basket is flatter to hold the webbing of quickdraws more securely. A larger rope-bearing surface adds durability not only for the carabiner, but for your rope as well. The nose geometry has also been optimised to allow for efficient rope clipping, and clipping and unclipping from bolts. The HotWire is a modern classic and ideal for everything from after-work sport cragging to big-wall free climbing and long alpine ice routes.
