The design of the Black Diamond Creek 50 Backpack has been heavily influenced by big wall haul bags and features gaping top-loader capabilities, eliminating the need for push-and-shove gear packing. It is constructed from ultra-durable, waterproof shell fabric to protect your gear from the elements, whilst the thermoformed back panel, padded shoulder straps and removeable waist belt ensure for a comfortable carry up steep approaches. The Creek's haul bag-style bottom, full-length side zip and rain hood that doubles as a helmet/rope holder round it out as a crag pack to rule all crag packs.
The well-trusted Black Diamond Express Ice Screw has been around for years and happens to be the easiest and fastest placing ice screw on the market. They have seen a few improvements in their time, the most recent being lengthening of the teeth, the addition of a second clipping point on the hanger and adding a bevel shape on the colour coded handle to improve grip. The handle allows the screw to be spun in or out of the ice with speed, and without changing hand position. The tube of the screw is tapered out so that the teeth cut a slightly larger hole than the tube - this reduces friction during placements.
The Blue Ice Aero Lite Ice Screws have been built with an innovative 3-tooth steel bit for technical mountaineering and are the lightest ice screws currently available on the market. The body and hanger have been made with aluminium to minimize weight, whilst the foldable crank is stainless steel. They are available in 4 lengths of 13cm, 16cm, 19cm and 22cm.
The Blue Ice Warthog 40L has been built for serious alpine use and has innovative hybrid laminated shoulder straps that are inspired by climbing harnesses. This produces a carry system that is super low profile but offers high load distribution and comfort. Carbonate coated fabrics shed off snow and ice and make this bag ever more robust for intensive use in winter conditions.
The Boreal Triglav are a technical alpine mountaineering boot that are robust, crampon compatible and offer a good level of protection against the cold. They have a breathable Dry-Line lining that offers reliable moisture protection, and the upper is made with lightweight and abrasion-resistant materials that have targeted reinforcements. These are the perfect boots for ice climbing and mountaineering, thanks to their multi-layered sole that offers reliable performance in steep terrain, whether with or without crampons.
The Climbing Technology RollNlock is an ultralight pulley and rope clamps that weighs in at just 80g! it's been designed for use in work, rope climbing manoeuvres, rescues and self-rescue situations.
The AK37-X RT is a long-awaited addition to the Crux AK line. It is identical to the AK37, but has a floating/removable lid instead of a fixed one which adds 3-5 litres of additional capacity. It otherwise shares the distinguishing characteristics of the AK range - a 40% Kevlar® / 60% Cordura® fabric with a highly waterproof TPU lamination and a fully welded construction. A top-loading style, it features a roll-top closing system under the hood for complete waterproofness.
The Crux 3G AK47-X RT has most of the same great features as the Crux 3G AK47 RT, but with an added floating removable lid and a roll top closure under the hood. Perfect for when you have to huff in huge loads to a camp and then need to strip the sack back down to minimise weight - or when you want to ditch the lid but still have a waterproof rucksack without need for a liner.
