    Comments about Omega Pacific Mountain Axe:

    I use it for regular mountaineering, glacier walk and snow fields. Feels solid, works fine for selfarresting falls but thats all. Not for anything more technical than that.

      Comments about Omega Pacific Mountain Axe:

      Used it on a hike up Mt. Adams, WA. I am 13 years old and my first snow climb. I got to the top with this axe and crampons...it was awesome. I also used the axe to steer on the way down (sliding on a tarp about 3500 feet!).

          Comments about Omega Pacific Mountain Axe:

          Why buy an ultralight axe that's too small or too flimsy to use for self arrest on a glacier? Too often climbers bring an axe into the mountains just in case, or they have a feeble tool suitable for walking, but not self-arrest. Given that this tool is modeled after the time-tested piolet, and it's built to take a beating, I can't imagine using anything else.

          Comments about Omega Pacific Mountain Axe:

          It looks solid and the design is simple, but this tool is way to heavy compared to most similar ice axes. Do not want to carry it in my pack. I am returning it without a doubt before I even use it.

            Good quality. well built . Very sturdy. A little heavy but worth the weight. It will work well in
            self arrest mode or in piolet canne. A bargain for the price.
