DMM Switch Ice Axe
Whether on ice, mixed or alpine terrain the DMM Switch will handle it all - a true, leashless all rounder! If swinging around on a marginal pick placement with both hands matched, gunning for the next sketchy hook is your thing, then look no further. Likewise, if quick enchainements in the Alps or psychedelically featured Continental ice float your boat then this is the tool for you. Radically curved to maximise clearance, it is the perfect partner for the most outrageous mixed, ice, and dry tooling routes around.
An aggressively curved shaft gives optimal clearance for steep terrain. Both the shaft and pick are T rated, which along with the full strength handle and double riveted construction, means the Switch can stand up to the harshest treatment.
The handle is CNC'd from a solid block of aluminium to maximise ergonomics and make the Switch highly stable when hooking through thin terrain. Full strength upper and lower rests allow you to make use of the full range of modern mixed climbing techniques.
- CNC machined handle for ergonomic grip and excellent stability
- Dual handrests for leashless climbing
- Removable pick weights allow customisable balance
- High clearance shaft maximises performance on steep terrain
- Full strength clip in point allows use of axe as an anchor
- Supplied with Grippy Grip Tape for extra handle grip and insulation
- Picks laser cut from steel for strength, and CNC'd for high performance in frozen turf and ice
- Interchangeable picks for improved performance on either ice or mixed terrain
- Made in UK
