For rugged alpine terrain, this T-rated ice axe has few peers. The unique forged chromoly steel head delivers superior strength and durability. A refined pick provides excellent performance both when swinging into ice and during a self arrest. The curve and arc of the adze have been optimized for maximum cutting performance, a feature greatly appreciated when chopping a belay stance. In addition, the sculpted head with the thermoplastic cap creates a comfortable hand grip when using the axe for support.
