Summary

Have used these on several outings. Ice screws bite great, hold well, and clean with ease.

Pros

  • Easy to place
  • Hold very well
  • Easy to clean

These are great ice screws that I feel comfortable relying on when my life is on my rope. They bite very well into ice and are placed easily. They clean well when racking up and are solid, reliable construction from Black Diamond.

On one trip I even drove a couple of these guys into some tree roots and made an incredibly bomber anchor.
