Topic - Does anyone do this with ice screws?

GridNorth - on 03 Dec 2012
Thread a QD over the screw with a krab attached to the other end. I've seen guides do it in the alps but I'm not totally convinced that it's safe. There are several advantages. Less karabiners to carry, less chance of the second dropping the screw as it can stay attached to the rope, quicker set up.

The Grivel Speedy works on this principle but they are expensive and you end up paying for karabiners that you may already have.
