Product Description

A technical tool for ice and mixed route climbing with a high level of difficulty.

Excellent grip, even leashless with the GRIPREST at the bottom of the shaft.

Placement made easy due to excellent clearance (cauliflower ice and mantles).

Minimum mass at rotation point (handle), maximum at the head of the axe for excellent swing.

Placement efficiency:
o forged pick, thinner at the tip, to prevent ice shattering,
o steep angled first tooth for thin ice and small edges,
o good stability while placing and hooking due to the teeth distribution.

Easy removal even with deep placements due to the bevelled teeth.

GRIPREST is removable for plunging shaft in snow.

Adze or hammer versions available.

Technical specifications:

* CASCADE pick included
* Interchangeable pick
* CLIPPER leash included
* Shaft: type T
* Length: 50 cm
* CE / UIAA - 645 g
