      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Rusty Ice Screws

Recommended Posts

Just got back from a 2 week trip and gear was stored with the ropes (wet) during this time. My ice screws are rusted up, primarily around the hangers. I realize this could probably be avoided by "taking better care of my gear" however to late now. Should I worry about this, can the rust be safely removed, I borrowed a bunch of the ice screws... frown.gif

If that doesn't work (it should) - a very light touch with light weight steel wool will.

Drop them from threee feet and then tell the owner that they had microfractures, then send them to me.... cantfocus.gifyellaf.gif

 

OK I'm kidding....Dru and CJ are correct. WD 40 or some other lubicant will work just fine. thumbs_up.gif
