Small upper hole for attaching a keeper cord for tools to avoid losing them.

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.

Great Ice Screw Holster

Easy to use one handed
Top "shelf" works great
Needs a bit of modification to work perfectly
I’ve used it a bunch

This screw carrier is really good for use on a harness or on a backpack. The wide base and substantial clip makes it easy to clip onto any 1" webbing strap on a backpack, but it also works very well on most harnesses.

For racking ice screws its great, I've been able to remove and rack ice screws blind and the top shelf holds screws out of the way. The only downside is that it's really hard to remove from harnesses. To make it a bit easier, file the rib below the clip down a bit so that that it doesn't catch when removing the carrier.
