The North Couloir is an all round technical tool designed to excel over a wide range of conditions and terrain. It's the ideal axe for those operating in the Scottish Winter or Alpine mid grades who also need an axe that works well on pure water ice.
At just 545g for the adze and 585g for the hammer, the North Couloir is a very light tool ideal for climbers keen to save as much weight as possible whilst still retaining great functionality. The more traditional handle make it suitable for plunging yet the curved shaft still makes the North Couloir a real performer on steep ground.
The tool comes equipped with the ice pick and a beefier mixed version is available as a spare. Head weights are supplied as standard which add a little more penetration to the tool if desired. The North Couloir is made in Italy.
