CAMP Corsa Nanotech - Axes: Reviews

Good for Backcountry
Because both the head and shaft are made out of aluminum (with steel tips), the Corsa weighs half as much as normal axes (just 8.8 ounces). Of course, that lack of heft also makes getting purchase in blue ice more difficult. Think of it this way: It's light enough for rando racing but just tough enough to arrest a fall, making it the perfect ax to affix to your pack when you hope you won't need it.
