Grivel 360 Ice Screw FEATURES of the Grivel 360 Ice Screw Foldable and compact wire handle design Hydrodynamic threads for easy penetration in hard ice Inverted threads offer better extraction resistance Sharp bite and easy starting for speedy placement anywhere Handle can be lifted away from surface and turned freely to avoid obstructions 360 design ideal for one-handed placement Slick and sleek finish prevents ice from clogging its core Great for ice climbing of all levels, including crevasse rescue or steep ice
The new 360Adeg screw can benefit all ice climbers. In situations where safety depends on speedy screw placement (crevasse rescue or steep ice) the 360's sharp bite and easy starting are quite reassuring. When obstructions of rock or ice prevent a normal fixed hanger's rotation, the 360's handle may be lifted away from the surface and turned freely. This is key for deeper placements. The 360's super-slick finish makes it very difficult for ice to clog its core. The 360's efficiency makes it possible to place an ice screw where and when you want to, not just where and when you are able to. 360 Small: 120mm long - 3.3 oz 360 Medium: 160mm long - 5.5 oz 360 Long: 200mm long - 7.1 oz
Grivel has redefined ice protection by combining a hanger with a greatly reduced turning radius and a retractable handle to give unsurpassed placement leverage, making the 360 Degree Ice Screw the easiest placing Grivel screws ever.
