Semi-rigid V-thread hook. Super sharp hook is protected by removable cap and will hook the slightest bit of cord!
Long enough to allow you to make V-threads with any length of ice screw. Can also be used for other kinds of threads.

Semi-rigid and very lightweight, the Abalahook won't get in your way.
Brightly colored cap will help you to see what you're doing while you are making your V-thread.

Ice Rating (if applicable)

Ice Rating

Most ice accessories do not have a rating. This field is used for ice axe and ice tool accessories like picks, that have an ice rating.

B / Type 1: Basic

T / Type 2: Technical

Note: Even though it looks like the more aggressive picks are T and the flatter picks are B, this is not always the case. The ratings are based on flex, and not the shape.
