The Sto-A-Way was the start of it all. Well actually, watching a YouTube video of Will Gadd making a V Anchor in the ice was the beginning.

I thought to myself, I can make a tool to retrieve the cordage.

The final result is the Sto-A-Way.

The Sto-A-Way features a loop handle, that make it easy to secure, a flexible stainless steel wire rope, with a 28mm reach , a hardened hook, and a hook cover made of weather resistant ASA Thermoplastic.

So what’s so unique about the Sto-A-Way? As the name implies, it stows right inside the long ice screw that you use to make the V Anchor with. That make it easy to keep track of, and easy to retrieve when needed.
