The Camp XLA 210 doesn't carry a B certification, so it hasn't passed the tests for all uses of a basic ice axe. Thus nobody is going to tell you this axe is safe, simply because of the liability issue. (Same goes for the even lighter ULA-Equipment Helix Potty Trowel, which bears an amazing resemblance to an ice axe.) This is a case where you will have to understand your requirements thoroughly, the risks involved, then make the call. It's not a no-brainer.
Suggestion: buy two and break one. Not cheap, but then you'll know its limits. Also, take a look at this thread.
I'd sure rather have one of these in my hand than a small bundle of broken wand ends...because I didn't think it was worth carrying a 17oz axe "just in case."
