Wasatch SummitsVery tough pole.

Voted 4/5

I purchased two of these to make a set. I have put them both through hell and back. I have broken one lower portion on one, though Black Diamond got me setup with a spare which has been used for several years now. The model I use also has foam under the handles which works very well for really steep ascents. These have saved me from being minced meat more times than I can count. Light, tough and reliable.
