The Aztar is a very light and well-balanced tool for technical alpine climbing. Itís good both on water ice and alpine snow.
The free lock leash system works great on straight walls, but can come undone when climbing mixed terrain, using the hands while letting the tools dangle from the wrist. On water ice this leash system is probably the best. Even when iced up you can free your hands to place protection.
Itís the perfect choice for all around climbing.
