24 January 2014 No comments

With the Scottish Winter in full swing, you can now demo a range of technical ice axes for free at our Soar at intu Braehead store in conjunction with the Snow Factor Ice Wall.

Ice axes all feel subtly different. Their weight, swing and handle ergonomics will suit different climbers. The best way to find your perfect match is to climb with a few different options, making this the perfect opportunity to try before you buy.

Ice Axes

We've got a great range available to demo, including:

  • DMM Switch
  • DMM Apex
  • DMM Fly
  • Petzl Ergo
  • Petzl Nomic
  • Petzl Quark
  • Black Diamond Viper
  • Grivel G14 Crampons

Just leave a debit or credit card, take your pick of the axes available and head over to the Ice Wall for some fantastic ice climbing.The giant indoor ice wall at Braehead gives plenty of climbing for beginner and expert alike, including easy angled slabs, vertical walls, arêtes, corners and a punishing 120° dry-tooling overhang.  There are more than 40 roped lines to try.  What's more, Soar at intu Braehead is an easy stop for those heading north on the M8/A82 route to the Highlands. A visit to Snow Factor ice wall is the perfect opportunity to test out your skills and equipment before hitting the hills in earnest.
