I keep looking at those things on my 2 year old corax and I keep thinking about throwing some spare wiregates in them and using them to keep alpine draws or maybe some passive gear on.  Anyone ever tried this?  Pros/cons?

I think you'll find that regular biners are kind of floppy in those ice clipper slots. Might work OK for you though.

Could probably do some wraps of tape to thicken them up and get em to have a friction fit in there.

I’ve kicked around the idea of keeping an ice clipper on my rock harness to rack nuts as they are cleaned for faster reracking on multipitch, but haven’t gotten around to trying it. Seems like a good idea but probably unnecessary at the end of the day...

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
