BD - the best screws around by far. And placing dull screws sucks. Always get the same type too, as they will rack alot easier.

For alpine routes I'd carry two 22cm screws minimum, then maybe a few 16cm. Alpine ice is very different to the waterfall variety, varying from aerated to boiler-plate, but it is rarely thin and plastic. Another reason I carry 22cm screws is for v-threads. Get your mate to pick up the v-thread hooker from MEC, useful even on alpine routes.
