Show Description

A general mountaineering axe with a investment cast stainless steel head. Makes a fine companion for crossing moderately glaciated regions, trekking, or slogging through snow. (For steep faces and more technical terrain, you may want a more aggressive axe.)

The ergonomically shaped head fills out to nestle naturally in your hand – it’s both easy to manoeuvre, and comfortable to carry over long hauls.

  • Stainless steel head, pick and spike. Pick curve and teeth are designed for self-arresting.
  • Aluminum shaft is uncovered and has a flush spike, both to facilitate plunging.
  • Long, aggressive adze makes short work of chopping and clearing.
  • B-rated pick and shaft.
  • Leash not included.
