Gear Review: Black Diamond Express Ice Screws

The Black Diamond Express Ice Screw provides the ice-climber with fast and efficient placements. The design of the BD ice screw cuts through ice with remarkable precision and ease allowing for fast protection. The flip lever, which resembles a crank, makes putting the ice screw in and out effortless. I would recommend this ice screw to anyone who enjoys ice climbing from the novice to expert.
