Description

Lightweight performance ice axe for glacier travel, with a meticulous design and finish.  The Glacier ice axe offers very good anchoring qualities in hard snow and ice, thanks to its very high quality steel pick, guaranteeing both solid bite and durability.  It also has an anodized aluminum shaft with a machined handle for excellent grip.

Features:

  • 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
