Petzl Ergonomic Ice Tool

- +

Designed for steep ice and for dry tooling, the Petzl Ergonomic Ice Tool offers an entirely modular construction and a stable, strong construction for excellent striking, slotting and hooking.

Why is this a Guide Pick?

Solveig Waterfall

My tool of choice when working in the Cascades is the Black Diamond Venom Hammer. This axe, while being heftier than it's feather-weight Raven cousin, gives me the power to secure additional protection.

Product Details
  • Entirely modular construction allows the technical aspects of the ice axe to be adjusted; sold with Dry pick, Masselottes, Mini Marteau and Griprest Ergonomic handrest
  • Compatible with Petzl accessories (not included): Ice, Pur'Ice, Pur'Dry, Panne and Marteau; includes Mini Marteau to protect the head and allow you to hammer a piton back in
