Customer Reviews of Black Diamond Ultralight Ice Screw
This is a great addition to your winter rack, with razor sharp teeth, minimal weight on the rack and effortless screw mechanism with the flip out handle.
It's a great piece of engineering. I'll opt for a longer one for crevasse rescue/ski tour use as this could still be a lot lighter than other screws of shorter length, and you might as well go for extra security at reduced weight. On the down side.... well... I couldn't find any. As ever BD strike gold.
