Blue Ice Bluebird Ice Axe

You might opt for bluebird days to tackle steeper ski mountaineering lines, but you don't necessarily have to; the Blue Ice Bluebird Ice Axe, on the other hand, is an absolute necessity for such routes. This classic axe boasts a hot-forged head and adze that lend an edgy grip on icy terrain. The straight shaft has a sandy feel to give your gloves the grip they need, and the angled spike provides extra purchase during glacier crossings.

Great and simple axe to push peaks!

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Used this ice axe on my recent Mt. Whitney summit push. It felt super comfortable and light when using it on some spicy traverses. I did hit a couple of rocks when plunging the ax into spots, but don't see any damage done to the spike. Love that this does come with a sliding pommel to protect your hand at multiple spots along the shaft. I'm about 6ft and went with the 60cm length. I feel like this size worked great when you are on an inclined slope, but I did find myself wanting a longer length when on relatively flat terrain. The axe weighed in at about 15.3oz/433g without the pick, adze, and spike guard (pommel still on the axe). #BackcountryGearhead

Product description is inaccurate…

Familiarity:
I returned this product before using it

This axe is not 8.5 ounces as it says in the soecs. It’s about 13 ounces. Should have checked manufacturers site before purchasing I guess.
