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.
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.
- 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
- Double handle (high and low) offers multiple grip modes and stable hand switching; sharp angle of handle is ideal for prolonged hanging and increases power when pulling
- Shape allows openhanded grip, limiting fatigue and optimizing rests; upper handle is over-molded and bi-material, offering grip and insulation from the cold
- Hydroformed shaft in middle offers optimal grip
- Griprest Ergonomic handrest is over-molded to 3 positions and adapts to all hand sizes even when you're wearing gloves
- Absence of steel point on lower part provides better protection if the axe comes out of position
- Dry pick with 3.3mm taper optimizes inverted positions; Masselotte weights facilitate slotting in and allow you to modify balance and improve inertia of ice axe
- Shape of Masselotte weights is optimized for slotting the pick in cracks
- 4mm thickness of pick makes it strong when slotted and torqued; curve under the head offers facilitated hooking
- Certifications: CE, UIAA
