The Black Diamond Viper has an adjustable upper hand rest which is easily secured or released with a quick Flick Lock system. The hand rest can be as low as the TPU hand grip or as high as the shaft mid-point. The hydroformed shaft extends through the grip for maximum rigidity and a responsive feel and as before the Viper still has a clip-able spike so it can be clipped with the Spinner Leash amongst other things. The Black Diamond Viper provides good all-round performance for ice and alpine climber.
The Blue Ice Bluebird Ice Axe is primarily a classic lightweight ice tool that will be ideal for mountaineering, alpinism, expeditions and ski mountaineering / touring and secondly the Bluebird Ice Axe is a thing of true beauty.
The DMM Apex is an ice tool with a new and modern design that make it perfect for ice and winter climbing in anywhere from Norway to Scotland. The shaft features an extreme curve, which provides good hand clearance in ice bulges and allows for a technical pick angle. The grip is insulated and ergonomically shaped for maximum comfort and control. All of its components are T-rated and subsequently suitable for belay anchoring.
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 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 Arwa is constructed out of modern synthetic materials, providing a super lightweight boot. Insulated by a full internal single layer of Thinsulate® lining - even on the sole to provide a real warmth even in the toughest conditions. The boot is suitable for all sorts of mountaineering from 4000m peaks, Scottish winter routes, alpinism and mixed and ice routes.
