Just wondering if anyone can give me some advice on the best first pair of ice axes for mixed routes in the Lake District and Scotland. I'm looking at doing some lower grade gullies and progress on to the steeper more technical stuff. I've been advised 3 different axes, first the petzl quark, second dmm fly and finally the new dmm raptor. I'm now slightly confused. I want an axe which will also allow me to self arrest efficiently but also climb the more technical routes as I progress. Any suggestions would be greatful thanks.
