For sale.
14 ice screws.
$350 incl. postage in Australia on this 2.5kg package.
8 work very well. All are in the first photo.

4 different makes - 3 screws are by Black Diamond
- two are 13cm length
- one is 16cm length

The middle 3 of the 1st photo are all 20cm long. They are not named.
EDIT June 2022. 1 screw only of these 3 has sold.

These, in my experience, are too long for ice climbing at Blue Lake in Kosciuszko NP,
but can be girth-hitched shorter along the shaft to then clip-in with your rope.
- They were my favourite in NZ's Southern Alps.

- 2 are made by Irbis and are nested (one fits inside the other). These are heavy but compact for the approach.

------

- modular Ice Flute to hold 5 ice screws - it comes apart easily, and clips onto your climbing harness.

------

6 unusual/retro screws - all in third photo
- 1 is blunt. 1 is curious - maybe hammer it flat and place as a piton.
- the fifth screw in the 3rd photo has a contemporary finish and cut, but the three teeth are dulled.
- 4 screws would probably work well in compressed ground when camping on your bush block at any time of year.
