This was a hard lead due to hard brittle ice. Any coaching on how to get a screw into bullet hard ice?

Yeah, start the hole with your tool pick, make sure your screws are sharp, & place screws in body positions where you get leverage and have good balance; you will need to overpower the ice bonding.

Looks like a fun section.
