Some time you have to get creative on a climb and protect the best you can. Or risk a run out and a big fall.

I have used nested nuts useally one inverted and it work very well.

I dont see why this would not hold a fall or at least ease the mental crux. It would be cool to test the placemant and see how it holds.
Now which to clip in to the Hex or the cam. . .

Obviously the cam!

The metal on the hex is way too smooth to engage the cam, but on the other hand, the curvatures fit perfectly, so it might work?

my money's on...no, definitely not

I do wonder how much "squeeze" force the hex will withstand though.

With a soft catch, it would hold 20 kN.

You got it right it is the cam.

The hex will never engage the cam. The lobes will just fold under fingertip pressure.
