Customer Reviews Of:
C.A.M.P. Alpina Ice Axe
Closeouts. For intensive use in rugged alpine terrain, C.A.M.P.'s Alpina ice axe delivers superior strength and durability. The refined, serrated pick is made of forged chromoly steel for reliable purchase, and the curved adze makes quick work of cutting out platforms.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Shane from Utah on Thursday, March 30, 2017The CAMP Alpina ice axe is a great general mountaineering axe used for glacier travel.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Justin from Tennessee on Wednesday, November 16, 2016Haven't used it yet, but the quality appears good.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mar from San Francisco, CA on Tuesday, October 25, 2016I have not yet used this on a mountaineering trip (so I will definitely be updating this review when I have), but it definitely appears to be a solid/ reliable axe. I expect that the slight angle of the axe handle will make it useful on more technical climbing routes (with mixed terrain/ steep verticals/ ice patches) and I like that the pick is steel but the axe is still quite lightweight... Overall, I assume it will be a great mountaineering tool on mountains such as Shasta and Hood. I'm a fan of the leash design and how it is attached to the axe as well. One more bonus feature: design and colors are really nice!
This is common sense, but I would NOT recommend vertical ice climbing or very technical alpinist routes with this axe. It's simply not designed for those types of climbing routes.
