WTB longer walking axe w/forged pick

Postby bogon » Tue Jan 07, 2014 9:02 pm

I'm looking for used ice axe with forged pick, mostly for glacier travel, so the shaft must be T rated. Also I want to be able to climb occasional bergshrund or ice wall with it. So the "hybrid", forged picks are best. The minimal length is 58cm, but 65cm is preferred.
For example, axes like these will do:
- Grivel Jorasses (old or new)
- Petzl Sum'Tec
- Grivel AirTech (any model)
Will also consider sufficiently long BD Venom, despite its "stamped in china" pick.
Leash is not important, but the spike is (cut-off shafts won't do).
Will pay with paypal.
I like all kinds of snow. The only poor snow I know of is ice. That better be climbed.
