WINNER - Win a Salewa North-X Ice Axe

© Salewa

WINNER: Duck123

Winter is coming and it is time to start thinking about your kit. Here is your chance to get ahead of the game and win this superb set of Salewa North-X axes in this simple UKC competition.

Designed to be a versatile ice axe which masters all activities related to technical mountaineering, without compromises: approach, climbing in steep mixed or ice terrain, building an anchor, crossing glaciers.

A balanced weight distribution and a 20° offset shaft guarantee an optimal swing and allow for efficient belay mounting. The leash, rated to 5kN, is perfect for self belays. The grip easily moves upwards in snow and does not prevent the setting up of an anchor and its function as a supporting tool.
