climbxclimbGreat tool

Voted 5/5

I borrowed a pair of these tools from a friend of mine while I was climbing in the Alps last summer, and I used the leash less on a couple of climbs one of them with WI4- alpine ice.
The are super light, but they swing really well, because of the heavy head, the straight shaft is perfect for piolet canne.
