High Angle Solutions – DMM – Talon Ground Anchors


The DMM Talon is a steep earth anchor born from the need to protect users operating in terrain where traditional anchors are marginal or non-existent. It has been designed as a ground anchor for back-roping stretchers on steep ground where the consequence of failure is not catastrophic.

Made from laser cut aircraft grade aluminium the Talon weighs in at only ~1.5 lbs (700 g). The upper edge is serrated to allow a user to weight the device for additional holding power. The main attachment point is an 11mm Dynatec sling threaded through a radius edged oversize hole, which allows the user to replace the sling operationally with 8mm cord or rope should the Dynatec sling become compromised. For convenient stowage the Talon is fitted with a retaining pin to keep all of the arms together for efficient storage and racking.

The DMM Talon does not have a strength rating however field tests with Mountain Rescue teams have shown consistent results around 5kN with up to 8kN in excellent ground.

Available in Red or Matte Grey.


High Angle Solutions is a weekly feature by DMM and CTOMS.
