      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND Raven Mountaineering Axe:

      I used this on a very vertical climb over ice and boulders. I had rigg'd up a wrist lanyard to help with grip. I had my full weight on it several times. The teeth bit very well. Other axes have sharp teeth and tear up your pack, this one is perfect.
