Black Diamond Raven

rated 4.5 of 5 stars How much can you say about an ice axe? This is not the lightest axe or strongest axe, but it's the best general mountaineering axe on the market. It does its job. Call me old school, but I believe an ice axe is the last place to try to save weight. You want something strong and burly. If you want to cut ounces, go for a jog and lose the love handles.The Raven is perfect for self belay and self arrest. Make you get it long enough — if you need something shorter, get a more technical axe like the… Full review

Black Diamond Venom Hammer Ice Axe

rated 5 of 5 stars When you need a second tool, but not necessarily a technical ice tool. "You know when it's good picket snow when you drive one in and you really wish you had a hammer." These were the words of wisdom from my crevasse rescue instructor. He was basically saying that snow should be really hard if you intend to place a picket in vertically, otherwise you should bury it dead-man style.  "So I need to bring two tools?" I asked. "No," was his response. "Well if all I have is a hammer, then how do I dig… Full review

Black Diamond Raven Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars This axe is strong, light and comes pretty sharp out of the box, though I did sharpen it more. For spring, winter or fall I take this thing up the mountain. Great design! I have used this axe as an anchor, a walking tool, a chopping tool and arrest tool. It is versatile and a great companion for my mountaineering journeys. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars A welcome necessity to any slippery slope! I like these crampons so much that I am willing to post a somewhat embarrassing photo of myself scampering up a section of steep terrain, butt in the air. I'm not sure what I would have done without them on the hike in which this photo was taken. There was a layer of powder covering a thick sheet of ice, and as you can see, the terrain was pretty steep in terms of hiking trails. The crampons were lightweight and easy to put on. My feet gripped without any… Full review

Stubai Tirol Pro

rated 5 of 5 stars Superbly constructed. It is Austrian made and reasonably priced compared to Petzl, but lower prices do not mean there is any compromises in the safety of the product. It is just not known as good as Petzl and the others do. Tirol is a remarkable 12 point tempered spring steel mountaineering crampon with flexible bar, available with three different bindings: pro step-in binding, combi binding for welt less toe boots or universal binding that will fit almost any footwear for steep ice and mixed terrain. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This product is best for trail runners who need more traction to get them through runs where they may encounter snow, ice, mud, or all of the above. It could also be used for persons looking for a lightweight hiking crampon. I have used these in quite a few runs as of late in everything from ice, snow, and even a bit of mud in some places and have not been disappointed. They are super easy to put on and take off if the conditions are variable. I use them primarily for trail running and found that… Full review

Petzl Lynx

rated 5 of 5 stars Great crampon for ice and mixed climbing. The Lynx is a peer try classic technical crampon. It fits most boots very well, and cinches in well. I have not had any problems yet with getting it to fit my Scarpa Mont Blancs. I have also lent it out to people to use on Sportiva Trango Extremes, Trango Evos, and even ski boots. They fit all well. I have climbed on these up on WI 4 and on M6. They proved able on both. Switching to mono points was a little annoying and my hands got cold, but that is expected. Full review

Hillsound Trail Crampon Ultra

rated 5 of 5 stars They are awesome, much better than the other options out there. I use them for hiking up steep mountain-packed trails in winter and shoulder season hikes when there might be ice. Definitely recommend. The Hillsound Crampon Ultras are a real step-up from the competitor's brand. The spikes are more grippy, the material used to stretch around the boot is superior, and the Velcro strap will ensure no more lost Microspikes! It does happen in certain conditions (learned the hard way). Love the product. Full review

Chouinard Equipment Blue Composite Shaft Ice Axe w/Curved Pick

rated 5 of 5 stars This ice axe is ergonomic and balanced. This ice axe is well balanced and has an ergonomic curve to ease its use. Chouinard is an old and well known  company which stays on top in tune with the times. I had a Chouinard/Frost bamboo handle technical axe since 1972; and I recently parted with it.   Full review
