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

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 3 out of 5 by from OK for glacier crossing, should have been all T-rated. The axe is OK for glacier crossing, and works well for self-arrest. You can also hang on the axe when climbing short stretches of vertical ice, using the leash. The pick is aggresive enough for that. ,,,,Eventually I sold the axe, and bought another mountaineering axe, all T-rated, that is stronger and more reliable for glacier rescue. I bought the Grivel Airtech Evo instead.

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 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 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 In love! I just fell in love with this an ice ax! It's ideal. Need to practice techniques for stopping breakdowns. So nice to stay with any of the previous ice ax, I could not. In addition, he is great and the technical climbing: Good bend, does not slip in your hand, comes in a cool ice. Recommend. In the summer I go to Kamchatka and take it with you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around axe! The Black Diamond Venom has replaced my classic piolet. Easy to use in the cane position, the slight bend helps in the high dagger position, and the rubber grip is nice all the time. Tech pick is available. Black Diamond's all-around axe is more pricey than your standard piolet, but incredibly more versatile - some advantages of a technical ice tool, and all the comfort of a classic ice axe.
