DMM Freedom Leash with Phantoms

The DMM Freedom leash is a simple and lightweight sprung leash system that prevents you dropping your expensive ice tools whilst ‘leashless’ climbing. 

Each end of the ice axe leash is equipped with a full strength Phantom carabiner (red and green for port and starboard). Some users may wish to use tape or strong elastic bands (AKA snoopy loops) to stop the carabiners rotating. The central point of the leash is best off larks-footed to the belay loop of your harness, or chest harness, although a screwgate carabiner could also be used.

Clip in points halfway up the leashes supposedly allow you to clip in a sling to climb back up to your axes should you fall off (if the leash holds then your axes will be out of reach). This is definitely not to be recommended! A possibly more practical use is to be able to clip in short and take a sly rest on your axes mid-pitch.

While cheaper than the BD Spinner, it doesn't do the job nearly as well, although it's still functional. - The Phantom wiregates that this uses are bigger and heavier than on the BD which means they swing around a lot more. - The leashes can become twisted if you're swapping axes on harder mixed routes whereas the BD is able to rotate. This means that the BD's don't get tangled either amongst themselves, or the ropes, and this is very noticeable. Functional, but it has its drawbacks. If you don't want to go BD then getting the bare DMM leash and using a few Ocun Kestrel wiregates is probably a little better as they're both cheaper and lighter than the Phantoms.
