What does the anagram "DMM" stand for?  DMM is an english climbing gear
manufacturer but I can't figure out what DMM is.

I see a Dragon in their ads, maybe dragon mountaineering manufacturing?  
I have no idea, do you?

Regards,\
George

DMM stands for Denny Morehouse Mountainworks. It is my understandign that
he used to work for the Kong climbing equipment manufacturer before
starting his own company.

The initials of the name of the founder, someone like:  Denny M. Moorhouse
who, by the way, was formerly at CLOG -- explains why the early DMM biners
closely resembled those from CLOG at the time.

More correctly, it is a Welsh climbing gear manufacturer (as is Clog), thus
explaining the dragon.

        I believe that DMM is (or was) owned by Denny Moorhouse. The final M
is probably for "Mountaineering"

As I understand it,  DMM stands for Dinty Moore Mountaineering.
The same guy that made big dough in the canned stew business.  
He was a climber and you see...

        I was just going to point that out. But its more likely to get you
points from the Welsh.
