Awesome slab climb right out of the water! Rogers ...
Would a 11cm ice screw be too short for any real pro on waterfall ice?

Depends on the quality of the ice........

I watched a "Stubby" in testing at Black Diamond and was surprised at the holding power......

BUT always follow the first rule in ice climbing......

NEVER FALL

Had a friend fall on a mixed climb....had only a 10cm with a Screamer attached...total length of fall was 15-20 feet...Screamer activated to it's fullest length...10 cm held the fall with the friend upside down looking his belayer in the eyes...so yeah, in good ice they do work.. Harry Richardson

I place mostly 13's and when I'm worried about bottoming out a screw I'll sink a 10.
but yeah mostly just don't fall leading ice. It's not so much that I'm worried about screws pulling, I'm worried about breaking my ankles/putting a tool through my femoral artery.
