The Venom Hammer by Black Diamond is the choice for technical mountaineering routes where performance, light weight and durability are paramount. A modular piolet with a curved shaft, the Venom plunges into snow cleanly, self arrests and provides solid placements in steep alpine ice. The interchangeable pick design gives you a choice between the Venom Classic Pick and the Venom Tech Pick, which has a more technical reverse curve. Both pick options self-arrest on snow. Comes with a Tech Pick and a Lockdown Leash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Use this extensively in the white mountains for moderately technical ice and snow climbing. I replaced the classic pick with the tech pick and it climbs ice good yet not too aggressive for self arrest. I have climbed up to WI3+ with this and would not want to try anything harder. Nice feel when swinging over head and light enough for piolet canne. Works really well glissading with the spike in the snow as a brake. I have even climbed short rock pitches and it will get you by on easier terrain. Go to tool for Huntington ravine or the likes. Will accompany me to Rainier this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Axe, I love the hammer! This has been a great axe, and when paired with the adze version, is a part of a very versatile axe system. The 57cm is a great length and the hammer pound in bomber pitons well. The technically curved pick is aggressive enough for steep 5th class climbing without getting in the way. On steep snowy and icy couliors the axe is equally at home, you cant go wrong with the Venom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great tool at a great price The adze/hammer option is great. It also comes with a leash in all models. This axe is comfortable to hold no matter which way you carry it and in my opinion second only to the Black Diamond Viper. It's built to last and cheeper than similar axes made by other brands.
