Decent belays in classic snow gullies can be hard to find. Sometimes on a big open snow slope there will be no other possible options beyond burying your axes, and that wont work very well unless the snow is hard enough.
The DMM Deadman gives you an element of security in some of the most insecure places.
They might seem a bit 'old school' but you could be very glad one day that you carried one and knew how to use it!
Make sure that youve got one clipped to the back of your harness the next time you head out winter climbing.
Top tip: It is imperative that the Deadman anchor is placed correctly to ensure maximum holding power.
A well placed Deadman will dig itself deeper under load, whilst a poorly placed one will pull out very easily.
Please read the instructions, consider getting some training ... and practice.
