DMM Cirque Mountaineering Axe
The Cirque is fully T rated for robust performance in the harsh winter environment. The gently curved pick and shaft combine to give excellent self arrest performance, while a spike on the handle provides grip and stability on snow and ice slopes. A full size adze makes step cutting and ledge chopping easy, while the shaft allows efficient plunging of the axe into snow when making progress. The Cirque comes equipped with our Standard leash for security should you accidentally drop the axe. - DMM

Virgin on Insanity by Steve Bell
Outwardly, 'Britain's most experienced teenage Alpinist' is a brave young mountaineer. But he's not experienced at all, at least not in the way he really wants to be. Behind his death-defying climbs there lurks a great deal of fear - fear of the opposite sex, fear of failure, fear of not being 'man enough'.
He seeks manhood in the mountains, yet he believes he will only truly gain it by losing something. Harrowing escapades in Scotland, the Alps and Alaska are interspersed by excruciating sexual encounters and unsettling hitch-hiking rides. When the mountains fail him, he seeks meaning with a religious cult in Colorado. Eventually he succeeds in his quest, only to find that he's lost more than he bargained for.
