Gear Notes



• Weight 685 grams



This tool is at home in alpine settings and mixed terrain (showing its Scottish roots) as well as pure ice. A subtle bend in the shaft creates a degree of clearance for bulges and steep terrain, but doesn’t affect the balance of the tool. The pick is quite thick for robust use on mixed terrain and for longevity, but does displace a bit more ice. A prominent pinky bulge creates a bit of a purchase platform and houses the toothed anti-skating spike.



Axe version.

Inserted hex-bolt component fixture system (driving pin included for changing bits).

Carabiner hole in spike.

Lightweight aluminum construction.

Steel spike and components.
