Hi Alva, The strength of ice anchors is always fairly difficult to ascertain due to the changeable nature of ice. However, here is a link to a very in-depth analysis of the strength of different ice anchors including Abalakov threads: http://www.ukclimbing.com/articles/page.php?id=4315 Hope that helps, Dave
