Blue Ice Aerolite Ice Screws

Color-coded hangers and crank knobs allow for easier and faster identification when looking for the length you need. These are the ideal screws for technical routes when weight is the enemy of success and performance matters. Available in five lengths 10, 13, 16, 19, and 22 cm.
