Compact and lightweight, the Glacier Literide ice axe is the perfect choice for ski mountaineering, skiing steep chutes and fast-and-light climbing.  It also has the benefit of great anchoring efficiency thanks to its very high-quality steel pick, guaranteering both confident anchoring and great durability.


  • Compact:  measuring 50 cm, the Glacier Literide is as compact as it is light, and therefore easily transportable on a pack
  • Lightness and comfort:
    • the upper part of the pick offers excellent grip (comfortable supporting surface)
    • the pick and shaft are lighter, yet extremely robust
  • Very good anchoring qualities in hard snow and ice, thanks to:
    • the profile of the pick, for sure and stable anchoring
    • the pick of toothed steel, thinner at the tip (3 mm)
    • the stainless steel spike, for very good penetration in hard snow
  • High strength and practical aspects:
    • high-quality steel pick (identical to picks of technical ice axes)
    • very strong steel adze with an edge designed for efficient cutting of steps
    • head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling
    • high-quality aluminum shaft (7075 aluminum, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent protection
    • handle cut into the shaft provides better grip when used for technical ice climbing
