Story: I'm a hiker and prefer ultralight solutions, so I thought I'd try this one. I used it on the Mountaineer's Route on Mount Whitney when conditions required self-anchor and self-belay type use. My friend had the Black Diamond Raven, and his axe outperformed mine and was overall a lot more confidence-inspiring, and most importantly — easier to use. I had to jam the Corsa in repeatedly, 2-3 times on average (often with two hands) to get a solid anchor, due to the light weight and lack of heft. His axe went in firmly on the first try every time with one hand, and as a result he was able to climb faster and more securely. So overall, if you know you'll need an axe, I'd go with a slightly heavier one with a steel head and shaft tip. But this one will work in a pinch if you're unlikely to need it. Recommended only for shoulder season mountain hikes, crossing passes, etc. Too lightweight for serious mountaineering.
