Black Diamond's Ultralight Ice Screw was designed because weight matters for those serious fast and light missions. Looking to shave weight wherever they could, Black Diamond constructed this specialty ice screw out of aluminum with a steel tip so as to not compromise drilling efficiency while also dropping weight in critical areas. The hangar geometry has been updated to provide the strength required and still boast the double openings that come with Black Diamond's express ice screws. A folding handle shaves more weight when you thought the product developers couldn't keep finding ways to cut back, and the handles are color coded so you can choose the correct length and drill the screw on the fly as you fight the pump.
