Ice climbing basics video: ice screw placement, anchors and V-threads

03.12.2013 by Planetmountain

The video by Petzl that demonstrates proper ice screw placement technique, as well as how to set an anchor and a v-thread in waterfall ice.

It's clear seven minutes don't suffice to cover all ice climbing techniques and safety aspects. Having said that, this is an interesting video tutorial by Petzl that analyses the key technical elements such as placing an ice screw, setting up a belay and making an Abalakov V-thread for abseils. An important summary before the cold really sets in.
