Hi everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that I have set up a new blog to keep track of the different ice axes available on the market today. Not really a review/ratings type of site -- more just a place you can go to see them all instead of hunting around for info, etc.

Feel free to check it out:

If you find that I'm missing a manufacturer or model, just let me know and I'll update the site accordingly.

Will you post any info on ice tools? I currently use BD Raven Pro Piolet, and a set of BD Rages. I'm thinking about someday buying some leash-less axes.

Moving to ice axes would be the logical next step once all data for each year's mountaineering tools has been posted. The topic probably deserves it's own resource however.
