Ice Axe Shaft Only? on 09/24/2013 20:01:16 MDT Print View

I started a thread related to mountaineering gear in the Gear section. Some of the folks who are focused on Mountaineering might have missed it though, so I'm mentioning it now: http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/forums/thread_display.html?forum_thread_id=82305

From your description it seem like the Petzl Snowtube Snow Anchor might be your answer.
It is literally a Ice axe shaft sans the head. 22 inches at a claimed weight of 9oz.
