Very good ice axe for glacciar travel
It worked perfect for ascending glaciar Pan De Azucar, El Cocuy, Colombia (5100m) and as an anchor in very hard snow, which it broke with no difficulty. The back shovel is also very good for working in the anchor. For the price is the best you can find, and even better than other that have a higher price. I totally recomend it for glaciar tavel. I dont use it for ice climb so i cant say how well it works for technical climb, but for the shape i dont think it could be the best option for that, but for the angle of the axe and how well it goes through snow and ice, I think is better that someone that has used it for ice climb give an opinion.
