Description

Show Description

This technical pole-with-pick provides some additional security when approaching and descending "no fall" ski lines, but should be used in conjunction with a lightweight axe. It's intended for experienced ski-mountaineers, with sufficient skill to safely and confidently ski around while carrying a sharpened pick.

The low-profile design negates the need to remove and replace the self-arrest pick portion when approaching and leaving steep climbs and descents. Must be used with the pick protector (included) when not being used, to avoid personal injury.

  • The 4130 chromoly pick is integrated right into the grip top and upper shaft, for increased comfort and greater collapsibility.
  • Two-section FlickLock system for collapsibility and secure use while skiing.
  • Includes Black Diamond Pick Protector, for safety.
  • Sold singly.
