Great for racking many screws!

The Caritool by Petzl is a great and inexpensive way to get more organized, efficient and safer while ice climbing. I have one Caritool on either side of my harness and rack my screws in them for leading or when following. Before launching into my next lead I try to figure out (by viewing the way ahead) which size screw I will need when and rack accordingly. I am also scoping out rests and getting a general idea of how I will tackle (not Jack) the pitch. Even if I don't plan exactly the way I end up using the screws, the Caritool lets me off the hook by allowing me to move one or two screws (not the size I need at the moment but the screw/s that are "next") up on top, without unclipping them, where they stay because of the ridges and slight raise in the plastic (bravo design!), so I can get the size screw I need. For example (may be overkill on the description but what the hell, I am not sleepy at the moment and enjoy sharing info); I have racked my long screws at the back (put them on the Caritool first) because I saw the need for stubbies (so I rack the stubbies last so I can access them off of the Caritool first) but did not end up placing many because the ice was so thin it wouldn't even take stubbies) and then I get into thicker ice that is a little airy and I want a long screw for deep penetration, so I put the two stubbies that were in "next" position up on top so I can access my long screw for the deep penetration I desire... Hope this helps you understand the great usability of the Caritool. Oh yea, another thing they are great for is racking your tools (pick back) when hiking or rappelling. I think the Caritool is large enough to get two tools on one, which is convenient. When rappelling I put my tools in my left Caritool because I rappel rightie!

Caritool fits extra "special" with Petzl Harnesses

The Petzl Harnesses have a special little "sleeve" on either side of the harness - between the gear loops, for the Caritool. Nice thinking frogs!
