  • Great price
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by Old Goat from Alabama on Tuesday, April 19, 2016
    Great price, good quality, light and will last a few seasons. A little concerned about the narrow head. The area between the adze and the pick. Narrow and may make a little uncomfortable and a long glacier route, a good pair of gloves may help some
  • not a good choice for hard snow or ice
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by CP Colorado from Colorado on Wednesday, November 18, 2015
    The top of the head is very thin. A hour or so of planting the spike in hard snow or ice will leave you with a terribly sore, if not bruised, palm.

  • “What size do I need. I'm 5'10'”
    Asked by Jetjeffy from Kansas on 7/24/2016 7:22:59 AM
    • Jetjeffy,

      The real trick in figuring out which length axe you need for mountaineering is to stand up straight and hold the axe by its head. If the spike falls below your ankle, then the axe is too long for you. Ideally, the spike should be somewhere between the bottom half of your calf and the top of your ankle.

      I'm 6'. On a glacier climb, i.e. Mt. Rainier, I use a 60cm. My best advice is to try a 50cm first. If to short, move up in length by only 5cm.

      Good climbing!
