We like Naked A-thread rappel anchors. Threads with rope or slings left behind are nothing more than Alpine trash. NEice will be there with hot soup and flying the NEice Drones to capture this event from the air. It looks like the cold weather will continue and the conditions should be great! Hope to see you there. Information on The Mountainfest can be found here….
Make a Naked A-Thread Rappel Anchor : North East Ice
There's too much uphill in the foreground from my fuzzy 's recollection. The ski hills seemed about 5km back from the crag. My basic understanding is that a V-thread is horizontal and an A-thread is vertical, and the letter A was chosen not as a simplification for Abalakov, but because it's the only other letter that makes the correct shape. Using, for example, an F or a G, would be time consuming, and ultimately rather dangerous. Various tests show an average of 10kN to rip out a 16cm screw in good ice. Apols for the essay, just a long-winded way of saying don't be complacent about faffing around at anchors while connected by a dyneema or nylon sling. I'm pretty sure he explains in the video why its called an A-thread.
Naked thread packs are now live on the website - These threads have been recovered from the archived threads storage at Cottage Garden threads! For whatever reason, these threads are no longer available, they may have been part of a one-off dye batch or could have been part of a discontinued colour collection. Jump to.
