Anybody have an opinion of these on moderate mixed routes (M4-M7)?

Responded on

they're a bit heavy, but with the mixed pick (not the lazers or titans) the tool performs well. Angles are solid, placement is steady, put some grip tape on and they perform well... don't expect them to out perform a leashless tool though.

I've climbed a lot of M5-M8 on my Vipers and they work just fine. Titan picks are great for alpine mixed. Solid swings/placements on ice and good enough for moderate mixed stuff. Matching on the Vipers causes a fair bit of pick shift, but they aren't high end mixed tools. Great bang for your buck with these for sure.
