CAUTION: These holds are intended for experienced climbers proficient in advanced dry tooling techniques. They are extremely challenging to place on surfaces exceeding a 20-degree overhang. Their purpose is to facilitate precision placements for advanced dry tooling.   Looking to train precision dry-tooling all year long? Check out the Mafia Dry-Tool Hold line! These are not only designed with specific shaping and plugs to be optimized for the regular wear of dry-tooling. They also have a unique plastic formula specifically formulated to add hardness and durability to dry-tooling holds. These holds set best on a vertical to slightly overhanging wall and are designed to test precision placements, just like you would see out on the rock and ice! Safety Warning
Dry tool climbing is an exhilarating sport that requires significant skill and experience. However, it also comes with inherent risks that should not be taken lightly. In addition to the typical dangers associated with climbing, dry tool climbing imposes extreme fall danger with a risk of being injured or impaled by the tools. As such, it is critical that dry tool products are only used by experienced climbers who understand how to minimize risks and climb safely and responsibly. While not comprehensive, the following are some important safety considerations to keep in mind when engaging in dry tool climbing:
  1. Always wear a helmet and safety glasses while dry tooling.
  2. Use leashes when rope climbing to prevent dropping an ice/dry tool. Make sure to use leashes that are appropriate for your tool and that are properly attached.
  3. Practice proper technique: Take the time to learn and practice proper footwork, swing technique, placement, and body positioning to help prevent injuries while dry tooling.
  4. Know your limits: Start with easier climbs and work your way up gradually. Don't push yourself too hard or attempt climbs that are beyond your skill level.
  5. Maintain a secure grip: Always maintain a firm and secure grip on your ice tool to prevent it from slipping or falling.
  6. Keep your tools sharp: Dull ice tools can slip off dry tool holds or bounce off the ice volumes, increasing the risk of injury. Keep your tools sharp and in good condition.
  7. Get professional instruction: Learn from experienced and qualified instructors or mentors who can teach necessary techniques and safety protocols.
  8. Use appropriate tools: Using inappropriate tools can compromise safety. Only use technical tools and never use a mountaineering axe on Escape dry tool products.
  9. Set dry tool holds correctly: ALWAYS set on wall angles where you can maintain balance and control on the hold. Misuse can lead to injury, particularly when tools pop off the hold leading to hitting the user in the face or eyes, or an uncontrolled fall.

    ALWAYS check the condition of the climbing wall, hardware, dry tool holds, ice volumes, and other climbing-related equipment prior to climbing. Replace any damaged equipment or equipment showing signs of wear prior to climbing.
