Technical Ice Axes
Whether it's for Scottish mixed, Continental ice or drytooling, a pair of technical axes are your key weapons. In this comparison review seven models go head to head.
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.
