You aren't going to rope up unless you can climb both ice and rock, and that's mainly because Black Diamond made the Mixed Pick primarily for scratching stony edges with the occasional ice poke. Its steeply angled first tooth increases the security of hooks while a serrated top increases stability while stein pulling. The Mixed Pick is compatible with all of Black Diamond's interchangeable-pick ice tools, so you can switch it out for those days on ice routes.
