I am no expert. Since we need an axe for self-arrest only, wouldn't a
lightweight aluminum one suffice? Like the Cassin Dragonfly or Lowe LW250
or whatever it's called? These weigh 9 or 10 ozs, I think. That's what
I have planned on. My ice axe teach said 65 or 70, to get a good grip at
both ends when you need it. Only a walking stick in deep snow or climb!
But I don't know. Many more knowledgable people will kick in, I'm sure.
>4. ok ok i lied i have one more question. any suggestions or thoughts about
I bought a pair of standard ski poles for $15 in a used sporting goods store,
new. I don't think you really need Leki poles, with springs, etc. But hey!
Happy new year! (Chicago - yikes!)
