  • Upper part of the shaft is curved to offer good clearance when climbing; the lower part is straighter and guarantees efficient penetration in snow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great General Mountaineering Axe This is the first axe I have owned. I used it to climb MT Adams the week before memorial day. I like the slight curve which was nice when making the final push over piker's peak. It was a little more aggressive and felt sturdy. I liked the 59cm, it wasn't long enough to use as a pole unless it was steep. But, I didn't really need it as a pole unless it was steep. It performed great glissading down the mountain as well. It felt like a good middle ground axe for anything you would want. Pretty decent at everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Summit 2 Did a lot of research prior to purchasing this ice axe. It will be used for glacier travel and general mountaineering. It won't be seeing use until later in the year during my upcoming 2months Alaska and Canada trip.
