/ Ice Axe to pair with a DMM Cirque
If you can't afford to buy two matched axes, get a Fly. I've climbed with a Cirque and a Fly up to II/III. You can always get another Fly later.
I'd have thought getting hold of a DMM Fly Hammer would be a reasonable up-grade path.
If you're looking to limit costs get a Fly as others have suggested, rather than another Cirque as this will allow you to then upgrade to a full pair of tech tools later more cheaply. Also, not sure they do a Cirque hammer (a hammer likely to be handy sooner or later).
Or if you've got a bit more money, consider whether you want to get a matched pair now and what you want those to be (Flys, Quarks, Reactor etc etc). This would avoid having a redundant Fly hammer or two cirques if at some point in the not too distant future you find yourself plumping for a more technical set.
I have a Simond Piranha that I'd happily sell for 25 quid which would be fine for just this sort of thing: http://bitsandbobsandoddsandsods.blogspot.com/2011/01/simond-piranha.html Here's a pic of my missus using it alongside an axe a bit like the cirque: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=164164 The biggest problem is that I brought it back to Finland with me last time I was in the UK, so the postage would be a bit more to send it to you than it would from inside Britain, but I can check cost and time if you are interested.
I'll take a couple of photos tonight. But in the meantime it looks almost Identical to this:
if it doesn't work out with Boulderdash86 then i am also interested in your fly!
