light weight 60cm ice axe
I was looking for an ice axe I could take with me while climbing overseas. This is the lightest axe on the market currently! I tried it out on a spring snow climb recently and was amazed how lightweight it was compared to my more trad raven ice pro axe from REI.
One bit of caution - the spike has a tendency to get filled with snow/dirt. Secondly, I'd suggest using the axe on snow and not dirt/rock. In one outing, after hitting couple granite rocks, the end of my new axe is partially marked. Lightweight is not always the strongest stuff.
