Topic - Which size "stubby" Ice Screw 10cm or 13cm

ecotom - on 13 Dec 2011
Hi,

I have read a couple of spanish sites describing the 10cm screw as for aiding only. Is it considered sufficient for leader falls on good ice? I want to get one for climbing gullies where decent ice might be pretty thin but to also use as one of my screws for climbing icefalls - probably placed last when there is a lot of rope out to limit impact etc.
I have 16cm screws so the drop to 13cm as my "stubby" screw doesn't seem that significant.
Any advice/thoughts appreciated!

Tom
