Grivel Speedy Medium Ice Screw

1   |  

Grivel Speedy Medium incorporates a 16cm Helix ice screw and 20cm sling and biner quickdraw attachment.

Speedy is a quickdraw-ice screw combo specifically designed to simplify manoeuvres of placement and removal safely without losing the screw. It consists of a shackel rotating freely on the screw tube, a sling in highly resistant Dyneema and a carabiner. There's a weight reduction of 15% compared to the traditional screw plus quickdraw and double carabiner.

With a Speedy the climber can set up a self belay by attaching the rope after only a few turns of the screw and then finish screwing in safely. As the carabiner hangs perpendicular to the ice it's easy to thread the rope with the carabiner facing in the right direction.

Features

  • The generously sized carabiner makes it easy to use with winter gloves.
  • The point of force is right up against the ice and follows the screw's length.
  • The ridge on the tube keeps Speedy in the right position avoiding whiplash in case of an abrupt jerk and stops the quickdraw slipping down the tube during placement.
  • Speedy lets the climber remove the screw without unthreading the rope so it's impossible to lose the screw, as once out of the ice it will be attached to the harness.

Quite good

Nice idea.. The actual Helix ice Screw is excellent. Didn't find placing them as easy as expected (when starting off the 'quickdraw' got in the way a bit) - perhaps need to experiment more Removing them was good and worked well - much easier to be relaxed about it. Not quite sure if the extra is worth it (but then, you only need to 'not drop' one to change that). The 20cm sling doesn't give the length of a 20cm quickdraw as there is one less krab....so I thought that was ok.
