Best Mountaineering Axe

  • Gender: Male

For my purposes of general mountaineering with or without crampons, this thing is more than enough. It's lightweight, chops pretty well, and is a good anchor. The Raven looks beautiful too. Most importantly, it's comfortable to hold.

I'm 6'1, 165 lbs and I have the 70 cm version. The 75 cm version would also do just fine.
