Check out these noobs with their teathers 8)http://www.alpineexposures.com/blogs/chamonix-conditions/7248614-sorenson-eastman-dent-du-requin

Iíve always thought they made sense on big alpine routes, just not small crags... but I guess you need to practice with them before heading up something big so Iíll retract my tether bashiní comments...

Leashes still suck though  ;D

I second al's comment.  I fell once will placing a screw (ax sheared through ice) and my other ax stayed where it was. If I had had tethers I feel that I would be missing teeth.  But that said, I do put something on axes when I go to willo-b or other big ice venues.
