Description

The Petzl Glacier Axe is an amazingly light but durable walking and general alpine climbing and mountaineering axe. The lightweight aluminium shaft makes it a dream to carry while the robust steel pick will see you through many seasons on the snow or ice. The shape of the pick is specifically designed to bite hard into snow or alpine ice for self arresting and for anchoring. This is an excellent choice for anyone going above the snow line or alpine climbers and mountaineers climbing on lower angle terrain. The Petzl Glacier Axe is supplied with a LINKIN leash. 

Features-

  • Lightness and comfort:
    - the upper part of the pick offers excellent grip (comfortable supporting surface)
    - the pick and the shaft are lighter, yet extremely robust
  • Very good anchoring qualities in hard snow and ice, thanks to:
    - the profile of the pick, for sure and stable anchoring
    - the toothed steel pick, thinner and durable at the tip (3 mm)
    - the stainless steel spike, for very good penetration in hard snow
  • High strength and practical aspects:
    - high-quality steel pick (identical to picks of technical ice axes)
    - very strong steel adze with with an edge designed for efficient cutting of steps
    - head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling
    - high-quality aluminum shaft (7075 aluminum, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent rust protection
    - handle cut into the shaft provides better grip when used for technical ice climbing
