Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Light, Durable, Sharp - The Tool of Choice for General Mountaineering Just finished a trip to the French Alps. This was my tool of choice for a climb on Mont Blanc. The Raven Pro performed flawlessly. The route includes 35 degree snow slopes, and about 500m of 3rd class scrambling on rock, snow and ice. The axe came in handy during both ascent and descent, and could handle the abuse of a mixed mountaineering route with nothing more than a few scratches. It's super light. The stainless steel head and spike are strong and durable, and can take plenty of abuse. Chopping steps with the knife-blade sharp adze is a breeze. I purchased a slider leash to go with the axe, but that stayed in my pack for the duration of the climb. Only on extra steep ice and snow would that be needed. Be aware that since there is no rubber grip on the shaft, it is more slippery than the venom, but a route requiring a lot of piolet traction is not what this axe was designed for. Make sure to get the axe and spike protectors to keep from shredding your bag and other items while transporting it. The pick, adze and spike are super sharp and demand respect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great overall ice axe I am not a very experienced mountaineer, I just started doing big trips recently. But this is the first ice axe I've used, and I don't see any reason to use another yet. It's comfortable to hold, and has a nice weight and balance to it. I felt very comfortable with it on steep slopes digging it into the snow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great combination of functionality and style The axe is light yet robust and sturdy. with he addition of looking amazing every time you look at it on the glacier or when it's hanging from the wall. If it was not for its metallic look, it would look like it was an artifact from way back when folks were hand forging beautiful axe shapes in the Italian Alps

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to my mountaineering kit Purchased this to keep me safe in the Rockies and South America. Excited to put it into action with some self arrest practice this fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent All Purpose Axe This is a great Mountaineering Axe. Dependable and light weight. Plenty strong, and I wouldn't trust a lighter weight axe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-rounder Just getting into mountaineering, this was my axe of choice due to the quality / weight / price spectrum. I've used and abused this thing on rock, snow and ice, and it has never let me down. The more banged up they get, the better they look! Except for the chipped adze end when someone used my axe to pound in a snow stake... But that's not BD's issue. You'll have nothing to regret with this axe!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, sturdy ice axe. Woo Woo Good weight, good features. Nice grip, sort of powder coated. Only complaint is that is doesn't come with a sheath. That's pretty silly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth It Solid Axe. Axes last a long time so it's worth it to get the right one and spend a little more for the lighter weight.

How do I find out what size ice axe I need?

Asked by: Yodler
Hi there, good question! To figure out the length axe you need for mountaineering, stand up straight and hold the axe by its head (or imagine the axe in your hand with your arm straight down) and measure down to your mid calf. The spike should be somewhere between the bottom half of your calf and the top of your ankle. Hope this helps!
