    What is the best (function well in cold and easy to open with big gloves) locking carabiner (triple action) for really cold weather (e.g. Denali)?

    While I haven’t tried all locking carabiner (triple action) but I have seen many of them get stuck (don’t open) while on mountain. Any recommendation?

    I really like the various flavors of grivel auto-locking biners, and prefer them to screw gates — they’re faster (after you practice a bit), you can’t forget to lock them, and they don’t come unscrewed. My favorite is the Tau https://grivel.com/products/tau-k12l, I’ve used it a ton ice and alpine climbing without ever icing it up, but I’m sure it’d be possible to do it.

    What’s the specific scenario/application for the auto-locker?
    Glacier travel?
