Raven Pro Ice Axe
May 09, 2011
I purchased this axe for a climb on Mt Rainer in April 2011. I had an older Black Diamond ice axe that was extremely heavy, so i thought i would make the switch...wow, is this light! But enough weight to slam in a self arrest, and enough substance for general mountaineering ...i can't say this would be a good axe for any sort of technical climbing as the head is too light, and would not hold well.... but again, for climbing normal routes on mountains like rainer, i found it perfect...Pros: Build quality, Ease of use
