These things are really light and quite versatile. A great low bulk addition to my alpine draws. These are not a replacement for slings but rather an additional piece that is streamlined for its use. I have some paired with 19 gs for an extremely light alpine draw. I can't wait to get my hands on a 110cm to test anchor building with it.
Sling performance has increased incrementally over the years. These seem more like a leap. The 55 is a cleaner, easier to manage, less prone to tangling or jamming, solution for an alpine draw. It also works very well with small biners such as the 19G, with less of a tendency to cross-load while shortened. The 110 is PERFECT for most belays on ice.
I bought the red one primarily for quick anchor building while multi pitch climbing. If you like to have options on your rack, then I would recommend getting this runner. I would have bought the smaller sizes too, but I already own a few long draws from other brands. The red runner is Perfect length for anchors or a personal tether. It’s a bit long for an extendable draw. The protective sheath is a nice feature and doesn’t seem to add weight. Get one!
Love the Blue Ice gear, you guys nailed it, love the new slings, so much neater to keep organized, also I truly love the ice screws! Thank you Blue Ice.
