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.

Brake with very litle force

Cons
Brake with very litle force
Familiarity
I’ve used it a few of times

A lot of times the wire of the gate gets out of its place an you drop your ice screws.
And now with very litle force they broke...
it's almost like they are made to fail...(so you 'll lose your ice screws and buy more...)
