WHAT DOES CHOCKSTONE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

chockstone

Nut (climbing)

In rock climbing, a nut is a metal wedge threaded on a wire, used for protection by wedging it into a crack in the rock. Quickdraws are clipped to the nut wire by the ascending climber and the rope threads through the quickdraw. Nuts come in a variety of sizes and styles, and several different brands are made by competing manufacturers. Most nuts are made of aluminum. Larger nuts may be threaded on Dyneema cord instead of wire, but this has become unusual. The very smallest nuts are known as micronuts and may be made of brass or other metal, and typically have their wires soldered into them, instead of looped through drilled holes. They are mostly used in aid climbing, and their value as protection, arresting a climber's fall, is marginal due to their low breaking strength, and the tiny surface area in contact with the rock, though this can be offset by placing several micronuts at a time. Other names used include RPs and brassies. They are available from several manufacturers in a variety of styles. British climbers in the 1950s and 1960s were the first to use nuts as climbing protection.
