Great for the Alps
Review by: peterbayliss, 2007-08-12
I used a pair of these (axe and hammer) this summer in the Alps and found them great. They are light for when you are carrying them on your pack, the shaft easily penetrates snow and the gently curve protects your knuckles, they also swing well.
I highly recommend them for alpine routes and have used them on 55o snow and ice but for very steep ice or hard mixed routes I would use a more technical axe.
Alpine tool supreme

Used this on Liberty Ridge last June, along with one Cobra. Climbed a section of 70+ ice and I was amazed at how well it performed. It is light, strong, plunges well, arrests well and feels good in my hand. This has replaced my other Alpine axes. I took the lease off and just tied a new webbing leash. Have not used the slider. Worth the money.
