Just because DMM designed its Alpha Trad Carabiner - 5-Pack specifically for trad climbing doesn't mean that you won't appreciate it on sport or ice. Its I-Beam construction makes this carabiner surprisingly light for how strong it is, and a clean nose covers the wire gate for snag-free unclipping. A deep rope basket keeps the rope oriented in the biner's ideal spot, and a grippy spine helps you clip efficiently and effectively so you can climb on without a worry.
