Modular ice axe for technical mountaineering

The SUM’TEC ice axe is extremely versatile: it adapts easily to different mountaineering activities, from classic to technical. It's completely modular, so you can optimize the configuration according to the objective. The TRIGREST handrest (adjustable without tools) and the compatibility of the ice axe with most Petzl accessories (PUR’ICE and DRY picks, MASSELOTTES) provide the efficiency required for difficult sections.

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.
