A really great mountaineer's axeI really love this axe; what else is there to say? I found the TrigRest to be durable, although I am a little skeptical that it won't hold up forever... oh well, it's not really necessary, just nice to have. I think this axe fits a good sweet spot; let's say you're climbing a route with a formidable bit of grade 2-3 WI or AI and want to do some two-tooling, but you also want to carry a nice mountaineer's axe with a spike and fairly straight shaft... this is your tool. It's well-balanced, durable, and fairly light. I'll put this and a Petzl Quark on my pack and be a happy climber!
