DMM - Bulldog III
Winter climbing protection is often about making the best of what’s available. In an ideal world, this would be ice screws in bullet hard ice and "bomber" rock protection throughout. However, our winter world is far from ideal and so inventive use of DMM's Bulldog has been crucial in offering protection in frozen turf, thin icy cracks and marginal ice smears for over a decade. The updated Bulldog keeps its versatility, but it’s lighter, easier to place and easier to remove than its predecessor.
A long flat plate on the back of the Bulldog creates a good area for hammering, making placements quick and easy. A long handle lets you create leverage to easily extract the Bulldog from stubborn placements, and also houses an extendable sling that helps reduce rope drag on wandering winter pitches.
