Ultra-lightweight and fast, this ice axe lives up to it's name. The Hummingbird is one of the lightest axes out there, slimmed down for fast ascents or ski-mo competitions. The durable titanium head and aluminum shaft handles swinging, plunging or use as a snow anchor, and you'll barely notice it on your pack.

  • Titanium head with adze.
  • Sandblasted curved aluminum shaft with a textured grip.
  • Durable spike aids plunging.
  • Includes pick and adze protectors.
  • Optional handrest sold separately.
