Hey folks!

We're attempting a JMT thru hike this summer! We're very excited, but this past winter was extra snowy, meaning that many of the high passes are inundated with snow. This may necessitate a ice axe in the event that I need to self arrest. 

Anyone have a used ice axe they're willing to part with? I don't need anything fancy. Just something basic. Lighter would be better, but I'm not picky.

Message me and we can negotiate.

Thanks!

I have a Grivel Alp Wing for $45. You pay shipping and I'll cover PayPal. Axe is located in Mammoth Lakes, CA so maybe you could pick it up.

If you're taking the I40 and passing through Barstow on the way up there I'll just lend you one for free.

If you're passing through San Diego on the 15 or 5, and will brush lightly on the front of my trousers with the back of your hand, I've got one I'll give you plus $5-10 bonus depending on how much you resemble that lady voice guy from Moron 5 or whatever that group is called.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
