Grivel Air Tech Racing Ice Axe
I once did a hike without an axe, thinking the weather was too nice, and te trail not too steep. Well the nice weather meant molten snow that re-froze into hard ice!Hairy!
I decided to buy this axe so I will never have an excuse to leave it behind. Worked! Works great.
Function aside, I love the classic lines of Grivel, unlike the funky shapes on other axes.
