Black Diamond Venom Ice Axe

- +

Our Take

If ice axes have quiver-killers, this is it. The Black Diamond Venom is the one tool to have for technical ski mountaineering missions, classic glacier routes and moderate snow climbs with short cruxes. The Venom’s stainless steel head features a fully interchangeable pick design that is compatible with any Black Diamond pick. The integrated grip and asymmetrical angled shaft provide security and easy handling when swinging it like an ice tool, and a sliding FlickLock pommel offers an adjustable second grip for choking up on steep snow. The dual-density grip and included Lockdown Leash increase security when things get dicey.

    Why is this a Guide Pick?

    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.
