Topic - Sheared off ice screw

Toby_W - on 03 Feb 2012
I mentioned this in my thread on Ecrins ice but thought it worth it's own thread. I saw an ice screw placed horizontally with the end sheared neatly off. It seemed someone got past the half way point on the last pitch of the climb we did, ran it out and then must have fallen. From now on I will be placing all my screws at the optimum 45 degree up angle.

Sadly I couldn't see what make but the entire threaded part remained minus the hanger.

cheers

Toby
