Solid axeThis is a nice mountaineering axe with a terrible leash. The leash just doesn't work very well, it always twists up and it doesn't fold over the top of the axe in a nice way. Passing the axe from your hands side to side doesn't feel very solid either. ,,,,I've used it in some "test" self arrests and it dug in nicely and it's easy to grip. ,,There really isn't enough weight in it to chop steps very easily, but people hardly do that anymore anyway. ,,,,I've used it for Mt. Washington, some winter 14'ers, and will probably take it to Bolivia with me.

Good strong light general ice axeFor a T rated axe this is light, well balanced and does the job well. Got 65cm for walking and general moutaineering and used for belaying on easy to mod snow slopes performed well and seems to be built strong enough to take a battering.
