What’s the DBAD Strap about then?
Chris Richards, Brant Direct – HVS 5a, Central Buttress, Clogwyn y Grochan, Llanberis, North Wales
My dad used to climb in Llanberis, and a year before I was born, he climbed a route called “Brant Direct”, and told his fiancé (my mum) that if they had a son, he’d like to call him brant.
And they did. And as a name, it’s been a blessing and a curse, but I wouldn’t be called anything else.
The heart of the DBAD Keystrap is a climbing grade carabiner, made by DMM in Llanberis, North Wales. Just down the road from Brant Direct.
So I designed this because I kept losing my keys. And I knew DMM carabiners were the best in the business. And they’re from (sort of) where I’m from. Because that’s what we’re about.
