The Venom Adze 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 classic pick and Lockdown leash.

  • Investment-cast, stainless steel head and spike
  • Accepts Venom Classic and Tech Picks, Lockdown Leash included
  • Venom Hammer is equipped with a Tech Pick and the Venom Adze comes with the Classic Pick
  • CEN-certified

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ice axe 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 versatile tool! This is probably the most versatile ice axe/tool on the market. It feels light and comfortable, while glacier walking. Definitely suitable for self arrest. On the other hand, I recently climbed vertical ice with it. As reviewers mentioned before, it is definitely possible with two of those bad boys. While not as comfortable and a little more strengthening than using classical ice tools, it still feels surprisingly good. If you are going on more technical alpine climbs, this is the best hybrid axe on the market.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good axe Whitney Expedition, loved it.,,,,Its very light, it has a decent angle to grab onto rocks and provide a great tool for pulling yourself up onto a ledge or simply provide support as your making your way through rough terrain. I would recommend this as a general mountaineering tool and would go with a longer handle instead of a shorter handle. ,,,,Very strong axe overall, love how you can replace the pick as well. I beat the crap out of its great that I dont have to buy a whole new axe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great All Around Axe You can take my review with a grain of salt since this is the most technical axe I've ever used, but so far it has preformed excellently in many different alpine terrains. On steep snow couliors the bent shaft helps keep your hands dry. On mixed rock and easy 5th class, the axe is technical enough to climb with, and the leash makes it very easy use your hands when you need to. I upgraded this with the tech pick and keep the classic as backup and I love it! its a great axe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really great and light tool For years I used a piece of iron with ice axe shape...now I've rock the base camp with my stylish VENOM,,works really good, easy to carry and to use it both with the normal and the banana pick,,the hole in the shovel could be a little bigger to put a carabine if you need it (big carabiners are hard to put inside),,the grip is great especially if you are using it at midday when snow melts, and it doesn't break when you use it as a pole,,No, I want my hammer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really nice features in a strong lightweight piolet This axe has some really nice features that really separate it from a less expensive alpine ice axe. Aside from the replacable tip (which is awesome), the slight curve is perfect when the terrain starts to get more vertical, and the grip is the perfect balance between "grippyness" and not interfering with penetration when traveling on more level terrain. Add in the included adjustable leash and you have a great balance of performance and value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is the best Black Diamond mountaineering Axe that I've ever used! I bought this for my Denali trip and it was exceptional! My only grip (to Black Diamond) is that the rubber grip at the bottom chips when you climb through rock (Denali Pass @ 18,000 feet). Other than that, the off-setting top helps with steeper pitches (60-80 degrees) and the removable pick parts make this perfect for Winter climbing to Summer "hiking".,,Great choice! I wouldn't go in the mountains without this Axe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good I bought two.... Got the 64cm classic first as my first technical axe. Works great in snow and ice, as a classic should. I got the 57cm hammer next with the technical pick. Should have gotten two of the same size because swinging different length axes is strange. That being said, a very durable axe. The curve at the top of the shaft is just enough to avoid bashing my knuckles on ice, but i wish the leash was more comfortable.
