Peace of mind without cutting off your circulation.

Want to keep track of your ice tools without the constriction of wrist leashes? Reach for the Black Diamond Slinger Leash, which is a lightweight version of the popular Spinner Leash. Its rugged steel mini clips to your axe for a secure connection, and its elastic webbing sheds more water than the nylon found on other leashes.

Flexibility is key

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This leash really allows me the flexibility I like when climbing couloirs. I can switch hands and not worry about getting tangled up.

Is this compatible with any ice tool...

Is this compatible with any ice tool type/brand? I have the Petzl Nomics

This will work with your Nomics. I've been using the black diamond spinner leashes with Quarks. They're compatible with all Petzl tools

Best Answer

This leash is designed to be used with one mountain axe and is compatible with any axe that has a clip-in hole on the head of the axe. If you're planning on using the leash with ice tools, such as the Petzl Nomic, I'd recommend checking out the Black Diamond Spinner Leash, which is similar to this one, but has two clip in connections and a small swivel to keep the leashes untangled.

Just what I needed

    Leash was a vast improvement over my old one. Service was fastest I've seen in a while. Keep up the good work. Thanks

    Does it's job, keeps out of the way.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like that the leash is elastic because you dont have excess slack to constanly deal with. I also love the carabiner style clip at the end. Attaches perfectly to my BD Raven ice axe. Clip one side to my axe and clip the loop to my harness or pack with another carabiner. The elastic has held up very well, it retains its elasticity despite many stretches.


      great leash. much more comfortable than those that attach to the wrist.
