Why are all the snot wipers on the thumb? I wipe my nose with the back of my hand... those snot wipers are useless to me!

Here's an "outside the box" idea: vehicle extrication gloves. I've used a set of the Ringers gloves for a couple of years now with no problems. I don't have the ones with the blood-borne pathogen barrier so I can't vouch for how they perform. Mine seem to keep my hands reasonably warm, although I don't usually wear them for more than an hour or so at a time.
Hope this helps.

D-Elvis... it's too bad that they don't say Arcteryx on them... they come in some pretty cool shades of black to match the rest of your ice get-up

Just like a 2003 Rutgers Bar crawl tee shirts makes for an awesome base layer for wicking away moisture.

RUBC shirts are only for Rock! they aren't used for ice...

and D-elvis... don't come whining to me when your super-duper NASA space materials get wet and stop keeping you warm! Sure the wool might be a smidge more bulky... but it's gonna keep working no matter what! And if you get real desperate, you can use them for pro! (wet wool sticks like a magnet to the ice)...

More likely, he'll come crying when he reaches retirement age (you know, in 5 years or so ) and he has no money saved. Between divorces and a wicked gear addiction, who has anything left over for a 401k....

I like to have a separate pair of gloves for the approach, then two pairs for climbing (i always keep the non in-use pair inside my jacket to stay warm) and a pair of big fluffy mittens for belaying. My "system" works like a charm for me.

Buy a couple of pairs, rotate them often always keeping the ones you aren't wearing inside your jacket so they don't freeze

An alternate spot for backup gloves/mittens is in your gaitors. The gloves/mittens stay very toasty and they help keep your legs warm too. And if in your gaitors they are very accessible when sitting in your harness. When climbing waterfall ice, or mountaneering, or even when cold weather hiking, my backups live in my gaitors.
