Product Description Item No.   10090299

The Summit Ice Axe by Petzl is designed for the modern practice of classic mountaineering. A result of the expertise acquired over many years, this product applies a new technical approach to this category of ice axes. The curved shaft provides the necessary clearance on steep or icy terrain. The light, forged steel head attached to the shaft ensures maximum efficiency.

FEATURES of the Petzl Summit Ice Axe

  • Hot forged chromoly steel head is curved to offer a comfortable, powerful grip
  • The shaft is made of ultra-light aluminum with a textured rubber coating for a solid grip and great thermal insulation
  • Curved upper shaft allows good clearance during climbing, while the straighter lower part guarantees efficient penetration in snow
  • The pick is thin (3.5 mm) at the tip to ensure solid purchase in ice, and wide in the middle (8 mm) for soft snow
  • The pick's curve and upper teeth increase the axe's holding power in piolet rampe usage
  • Tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
  • Head and spike are equipped with wide, oval holes for easily clipping a carabiner
  • Stainless steel spike ensures excellent grip on rock
  • Ergonomically shaped spike is adapted to the shape of the palm and designed to avoid damaging the bottom of the grip
  • Available in three lengths

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Alpine Slogs This is really the only ice axe I have used, so I can't compare it, but I was happy with it. It's not a walking stick, even at the largest size, you would have to be pretty short to use it as such. It really excels on steep snow slopes. I struggled up a 60 degree snow field with this guy and snow shoes. It was scary, but the ice axe performed admirably. The rubber is easy to grip and swing from below with large mittens. The head is also natural to hold in self arrest position. The top clip point can be a little finnicky if you want to get a carabiner in there. If you plan to use it as an anchor, maybe tie some cord onto it.
