A great technical tool for advanced alpinists. The shaft features our patented Hand Rest® system that quickly adapts the tool to variable terrain. For general mountaineering, the lower shaft is smooth and straight so it plunges easily into snow. When steep ice is encountered, slide the red hand grip up and swing out the hand rest for vertical climbing. The rugged thermoplastic hand grip will survive years of banging against rocks and knocking snow from crampons.

The ergonomic adze excels on mixed terrain and feels secure in a bare or gloved hand. The adze head features a steep classic pick designed for optimal performance on snow. The pick has no teeth on the underside near the head for hand comfort and reduced wear on gloves.
