I got tired of looking for a rock to hammer in my backpacking tent spikes. At only 3 oz I decided to throw this little hammer in my backpack for overnight hikes. This thing is the perfect size for gently pounding in those lightweight tent spikes without hurting your hand. Okay, this is not the intended purpose of this hammer but it works PERFECT fror me just to have a super lightweight mini hammer in my ultra light backpack.

Unless you are swinging picks in a comp, you don't need this. Buy the standard hammer, it provides better balance and will help you more. This is only a part that should be used by people who only climb mixed routes and never swing the pick into ice.
