In 2002, we introduced the first “all mountain wiregate” by building an all-purpose, ovalized D-Shape frame with a wiregate. Named “The Doval,” it quickly became one of our best sellers.

This year, we're equally proud to launch its replacement, the hot-forged Lava! Built for multipurpose use as a daily workhorse, the Lava boasts reduced mass and improved handling; it's easier to tell top from bottom, and the 34gm weight means you can use it for 'draws, slings, cams and anchors without a weight penalty.

The Lava also features the Infinity Wire Gate. We "pinch" it in the middle so that it's less likely to get hung up in other biners or open accidentally when it's dragged across a rock face. Easy to clip and improved ergonomics make it a real bonus over conventional wiregate 'biners.
