I received two lanyards from Beal for review - a Dynadouble Clip and a Dynaclip, says Jack Geldard. That's right, the Dynadoubleclip has two clip in points and the Dyna clip has one.

The lanyards obviously do exactly what they are supposed to, they attach you to belay points. The Dynadouble clip has one lanyard at a length of 40cm and one at 70cm, allowing you to clip in to staggered bolts at a bolt belay.

The fact that the lanyards are made from rope adds a small element of stretch to the system that you don't get with a sling.

The lanyards are well made, of a well thought out length and are very strong.

If you are doing a lot of multipitch sport routes or even canyoning, then these could be a good bet for quick and simple attachment.

If you mainly climb UK sport and trad I would say they are a rather specialist investment and you might be better purchasing some slings or learning how to build a belay with the 60m rope you have with you.

Summary:

A good but specialist bit of kit. Multipitch sport or canyoning fits well with these.

PRICE: For the single Dynaclip, £17.50 (40cm) and £19.00 (75cm). For the Dyna Double Clip, £24.00
