New SALEWA North-X Ice Axe

New SALEWA North-X Ice Axe, 132 kb

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.
