|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
V thread or also called the Abalakov is often the best choice for solid rappel anchors on multi-pitch ice climbs or as a part of a belay anchor. It is considered stronger than an ice screw in the same location.
Named after its inventor, the Russian climber Vitali Abalakov.
