Cassin Scorpio V-Threader

Often times it is the little things that make all the difference when alpine climbing and the Scorpio V-Threader is one of them. For years I have used flexible cable threaders thinking nothing of it. That was until recently when I found myself at the top of a three-pitch ice climb with a cable threader whose hook had been bent so many times that when I went to pull the cord through the hole to set up a rappel the hook snapped. While I wasted time trying a variety of fixes the sun came around the buttress and started to melt the ice leaving me drenched. I had no other option but to leave screws on the climb in order to descended. I swore to never carry a flimsy v-threader again. The rigidity of the Scorpio V-Threader also has another big advantage; if the second is too pumped or tired to clean the ice out of a screw you can use the Scorpio at the belay to clear the plug. In a pinch I have also used the Scorpio V-Threader to help get stuck cams out on alpine climbs. I will never leave the ground without one again. **Fabrizio Zangrilli is a CAMP sponsored athlete who tests the gear over hundreds of miles of technical climbing each year, then provides feedback for improvements or endorsements.
