Comments about Black Diamond Lockdown Ice Axe Leash:

Presumably marketed to those of us still questioning leashless, this is the newest and only surviving version of the girth hitch style leash. (Grivel made one for the Rambo era tools which are now extinct.) It works seriously well for weighting your leashes on vertical ice, albeit slightly less secure than the BD Android. The leash essentially pinches down on your wrist like a slip knot or girth hitch with a small buckle to limit the degree of constriction. To escape the leash while climbing, there is a loop provided to go over your hammer. A downward pull opens the whole thing up and leaves it there ready to accept your hand again. The best feature may be that you can easily let the tool just dangle around while placing gear without the threat of it sailing away. The Android is more secure for pure waterfalls but these are faster and simpler overall for alpine. This style of leash also leaves the spike, grip, and shaft unencumbered by plastic doo-dads (leashless stuff) and thus still viable for plunging all the way in firm neve. I have used these succesfully on Pulsars and Rambo II,s.
