The Black Diamond Slinger Leash is a stretchy tethering system designed for keeping your axe attached to you without the need for a wrist leash. This enables you to switch quickly between hands when traversing slopes or climbing, without undoing an annoying leash.
The Slinger Leash is designed for just one axe, for example when ski touring, winter walking or low-grade mountaineering.
Features of the Black Diamond Slinger Leash:
- Elasticated leash to avoid excess fabric
- Polyester - does not soak up water
- Locking mini carabiner (non weight bearing) attaches to spike or head
- Rated to 2 kN
Customer Reviews of Black Diamond Slinger Leash
What a great piece of kit. Easy to use and a potential life saver. I used this on a recent trip to Scotland, when I secured my ice axe to it whilst ridge walking. The elasticated leash retracts easily to ensure that it is out of the way and not likely to be tripped over and the clip is very secure.Overall an essential for winter walks
So I use this piece for early morning and late evening when the light is minimal - as I use a raven pro (not very visible) and am quite forgetful, I can drop my axe when I need to adjust pack or place a runner in a hurry, it stays with me all the time . If you're not a fan of the leash, I would go for the BD holster but why not get both! It is also handy for attaching nut key and even the dog!
