Petzl Summit Ice Axe
Sorry, this item is out of stock
Hot forged chromoly steel head is curved to offer a comfortable, powerful grip. The shaft is made of ultra-light aluminum with a textured rubber coating for a solid grip and great thermal insulation. Curved upper shaft allows good clearance during climbing, while the straighter lower part guarantees efficient penetration in snow
The pick is thin (3.5 mm) at the tip to ensure solid purchase in ice, and wide in the middle (8 mm) for soft snow. The pick's curve and upper teeth increase the axe's holding power in piolet rampe usage. Tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
Head and spike are equipped with wide, oval holes for easily clipping a carabiner
Stainless steel spike ensures excellent grip on rock.
Ergonomically shaped spike is adapted to the shape of the palm and designated to avoid damaging the bottom of the grip
