Ice screw rebores?

Average?  2300# at failure for a stubby.

Thanks Matt!

He forgot to fold the handle...

The video made me think of this post from January last year http://coldthistle.blogspot.se/2011/01/be-attentive-when-placing-ice-screws.html

Climb safe!

Good "catch" Jorgen!

The video shows using a stubbie in a rebore from a long screw (22cm?).

It is good ice and the stubbie screw failed at around 2300#s in a drop test. 2300# is pretty good. Which is why I use rebores when it is easy to do so.
