Multi-purpose ice tool, hammer or adze versions

The lightweight and versatile AZTAR is designed for anything from frozen waterfalls to mountain routes where almost anything can be encountered. The included BLUEICE pick handles brittle ice, hard snow and rock with equal aplomb. The small diameter shaft with molded grip makes it ideal for those with smaller hands. FREELOCK leash included.

Features

  • Good penetration of the shaft in hard snow: for piolet canne usage.
  • Included BLUEICE pick for placement efficiency.
  • Curved upper shaft for ease of placement and hooking.
  • Small-diameter molded polymer handle ensures an excellent grip and insulation.
  • Equipped with FREELOCK leash, which is tightened and loosened with a simple rotation of the wrist.
  • Adze or hammer versions available.

RRP: £130
