Cassin X-Gyro Leash Description

  • Brand : Cassin
  • Season : Wintery!
  • Code : CSS XGYROLEASH
  • Packaged Weight : 0.15KG
  • Double spring elastic axe tethers to stop those expensive axes hitting the deck. These ones have a three way rotator system to stop tangles and come in two lengths.

    They also come with two ways of of fastening them to your axes. They have very lightweight wiregate karabiners which can be clipped to any suitable point on the axe (we suggest a loop of cord as they may unclip themselves if clipped directtly into a metal component). These karabines can also be removed easily and instead two loops of cord can be larksfooted around the shafts of your axes (if these cord loops aren't wanted they can be chopped off).

     

    Buyers Guide

    We have had reports of the wiregates on spring leashes becoming unclipped from iceaxes. This is easily resolved. Instead of clipping them directly to the axes, clip them to loops of 4mm or 5mm cord that are tied through suitable holes in the axes (see photo).

    It is also easy to make yourself a bandolier to clip your spring leash into using a length (ca 2.25m) of narrow tape and a small screwgate krab. Tie an overhand knot in one end of the tape and clip it to your belay loop. Run the tape under your arm, up your back and over your shoulder, and tie an overhand loop in it at chest height. Continue the run down to waist level and make a third loop which is clipped into the same screwgate krab in your belay loop. The spring leash loop is now clipped into the chest loop.

    The advantages of this system are that the elastic lanyards of the spring leash do not get tangled up with gear hanging on your harness and you are less likely to trip over them with your crampons. Also it means that the landyards are effectively lengthened, meaning that they can be clipped into a point on the shaft of the axe (as per the photo) - this is much better when mixed climbing as the ferule and lower shaft of the axe may need to be jammed into a crack, tricky if it has a karabiner flapping around on it.
