WTB: Ice screws and headlamp

Recommended Posts

I am looking to build up an ice rack, so I need some screws. I don't have too much money, but I figure if I save up all my money I should have a basic ice rack before February, which is when I am going for a 9-day ice climbing trip in Canada (that's my deadline for getting a rack and following on WI5). My favorite screws are the Black Diamond Express and Turbo Express. I see them for $30 each on here all the time, but I always just miss them.

 

I'm also looking for a headlamp because I lost mine.

Hey Mark -

 

might be worth doing a google search on Mammut headlamps -- if you can find one on sale, I've felt like I've got more light for the money from Mammut than from Pretzel, BD, or Princeton Tec....

Mark, I've been very pleased with the BD Spot headlamp, $40 list and worth it in my opinion. I've seen it on sale for $30. In a recent Mountain Gear catalog in the center clearance section are Omega Pacific screws @ $31.50 buying 4 or more. This price doesn't show up online, you might have to call in and talk to a person. I've never used these screws but the price is certainly good for a new screw. Haireball or others could probably advise.
