Black Diamond's Vipers are beautiful, highly technical tools offering exceptional clearance and balance, yet also make good all round tools and are very versatile. They can be set up with a larger version of the standard hammer and adze and the harder T-rated Titan picks to give them a distinctly Scottish look and feel. If continental ice is more your thing then use them with two micro hammers and the standard laser B rated picks. The fang and strike are removable and they plunge well too. All in all a good choice for your first technical tool if you're planning on progressing through the grades quickly.
