The Lightest Ice Tool In The World

C.A.M.P. Awax Leashless Hammer

The C.A.M.P. Awax leashless tools instantly imporved my climbing, hands down. Try shaving 10-12 ounces off of each pumped and fatigued forearm for a few hours and having the wrist support of a leash on a leashless ice tool! Climbing with Camp Awax tools, you will realize why the only choice of ice tool for me is Italian made.

Its impressive ultra-lightweight construction does not mean CAMP skimps on high-performance features. The Awax is not only easy to use but also meets the highest requirements of a performance ice tool.

The Awax features a sharp forged steel pick and aggressive tooth profile prescribed by climbing pioneer, Alex Lowe, who invented the design in the early 1990's.

A double curve of the handle allows for easy hooking and a wide range of blade movement. The Awax is perfectly balanced between the head and handle for optimal penetration and ease of swing.

Wrist wrap holsters clip on and off the tools so smoothe and easy, you will wonder how in the fack you ever put in an ice screw with a tool dangling from a leashed tool.

This tool is ready for you to perform your hardest moves on ice yet!!

Super light!
Great tool, if I didn't climb leashless I would love it. Unfortunately I run a home-made "leash" system that clips into the beaner loop at the bottom of the tool, and if I wanted to go fully leashless that is not possible without drilling holes in the tool. The leashless kit CAMP offers removes the ability to use that hole.

Natural swing
Great purchase (more on this later)

Leash system it comes with is poor
Over-sticks in the ice (had to file it down a bit, there is sort of a tooth at the absolute point of the pick)
poor forethought on leashless system by CAMP

Overall: I would buy this tool again, it is awesome
