Show Description

Convert you shovel to an ice axe for steep, exposed slopes where you might want a self-arrest tool. Attach the compact pick to the shovel’s T-handle and slide the spike into the shaft bottom to make a lightweight emergency axe. The telescoping shaft adjusts the height and extends to a full 84cm when you need leverage for shoveling.

  • Pick is forged steel.
  • When not in use, the pick and spike nest together for safe storage in a jacket pocket or pack.
  • Pro Alu III, Ortovox's premier shovel is fast to assemble and has a huge 2.7L scoop volume. T-handle configures for right or left-handed users.
  • Telescoping shaft is secure and compact enough (44cm) to fit in a pack.
  • Shovel blade has slots for rigging a rescue sled, and mounts on the shaft handle to make a scoop for snow cave construction.
