The Blue Ice Hydra Leash is an elasticated Y-section leash with a swivel, that keeps your ice axes tethered to you without tangles. With the Hydra Leash you can climb leashless safe in the knowledge that cannot loose your axes.
The Hydra Leash can be larks footed through the belay loop of your harness and then can be attached by small carabiners (included) to either the bottom or the top of your ice axes depending on circumstances. As the leashes are elasticated they do not loop down when climbing, so you do not catch them on your crampons, and they extend without hindrance when at full reach. The 360-degree ball-and-socket swivel and strap length allow the ice axes to be freely manipulated without the risk of entanglement.
Note: The Hydra Leash is not rated to hold a fall on to your tools and should not be used in this way.
