Ice screw caution

TEDWESLEY - 2-23-2019 at 07:28 AM

With spring approaching and the sun gaining strength it's a good idea to
check your ice screws during the course of the day if you are using them for a base landing. The sun can warm the screws enough for the ice to soften and melt around the threads allowing the screw to pull free. A kite on the loose trailing a flailing ice screw is not a good thing. Be safe!
