Using the modern ice tools

A tutorial here on the use of  modern tools.  BD Cobra in use on lead in this instance.  While the photographer was soloing with a pair of Nomics.  Solid WI3 terrain and perfect ice conditions.

Hi Dane, please check this out:
I have the Cassin X Dry tools and I don't think it is a good idea to use the upper grip, unless You have really good placement.

First tools I was started matching hands on was the original Quark with a second grip added. The author you have sent a link to pretty much covered it I think, with "I was really pumped and not climbing in control."
