An absolute must for winter climbing on the North face of Pen Y Fan.
 
Originally designed by DMM to be hammered into frozen up rock cracks or placed in axe pockets on icefalls, the Bulldog is exceptionally useful when hammered into frozen turf.
 
It actually has some holding power as, if fallen on the Bulldog is forced to pull down through the turf giving some chance of holding. Although not ideal I feel at the moment this is only piece of gear available that gives any protection on big frozen turf faces aka, North face of Pen Y Fan.
 
Top Tip: When carrying on harness, don’t just clip it so it dangles, clip it through the head and backwards so there is less chance of it stabbing you!
