Perfect 'slog' route axe
This tool is absolutely great. It is really sharp, the material is very durable. This is not a workhorse axe, but an axe for mountains with non technical lines like rainier, shasta, mt andromeda etc that, yeah you need an axe but you will not be bashing gear, not a huge fear of falling etc. In other words, this is a great axe for 'slog' routes. You can easily save 8 ounces with this axe over many others. Save the weight, get this. Youll be surprised how sharp the pick is too.
