DMM make the best climbing hardware, in the world. That’s our opinion – and probably the opinion of most British climbers! Honestly, we both climbed on DMM gear for years before they were generous enough to support us with a load of their fantastically high-quality climbing gear. Carabiners, nuts, cams, ropes – all the stuff that matters. we can climb with a little extra confidence knowing where our kit comes from and how well its made.
