Ice Axes - Climbing - DMM Fly - Pair
The ever popular DMM Fly ice axes are now available as a pair at a very nice price. Less than 200 quid for a set of ice tools? Can't be bad.
The DMM Fly Ice Axe is an excellent all round alpine and winter tool. Not as aggressively styled as many modern axes, this makes the Fly suitable for general mountaineering duties, as well as more vertical forays. The pick is T rated meaning that its tough enough to handle the mixed routes typically found in Scotland and the Alps.
The Fly is a very user friendly Ice tool that's well balanced and comfortable. The straight lower section of the shaft plunges easily into snow, while the curved upper section saves your knuckles from getting bashed and allows reachy placements over the top of ice cauliflowers or turfy bulges. The hammer isn't a toffee hammer either and is beefy enough to wallop a bulldog or warthog into frozen tough without any arguments.
