The Viper Ice Tool by Black Diamond has evolved with a new hydroformed shaft to increase stiffness and reduce weight, while maintaining exceptional clearance. Hydroforming uses pressurized water to expand the Viper's shaft into its uniquely stiff, yet lightweight shape. With superb balance, leashless capability and an optional integrated Android Leash, the Viper goes most anywhere. Comes equipped with our Viper Fang and Strike, to cradle your hands for precise gripping when going leashless. Laser Pick included. Patented.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from universal perfect tool Tried this on mixed and ice climbs. They are really light, perfectly balanced and well made. Great for alpine style climbing. Picks are durable and last longer then Singing Rock Bandits (my previous axes). If you keep them sharp, they are also great in ice, however if you prefer only ice climbing and more difficult routes, then you should consider Fuels or other specialized tools for ice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great update!! Having used an older version of the Vipers these were a great step up. Love the adjustable trigger. Super easy swing and solid confident placement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super versatile! I've had these about a year and they are my first leashless tool (it takes me awhile to accept change). They have a great feel, easy to swing accurately and area a great lightweight general use tool for those of us who don't climb in fruitboots for a living. The lower hand grip/hook is removable so they can double as a hybrid style mountaineering axe, which is very handy both for approaches and for minimizing the gear clogging up your garage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect All-Arounder I love these. I finally decided to breakdown and replace my first generation leashed Cobras, and I couldn't be happier. The Vipers made the transition to leashless climbing simple and straightforward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Spent a full week of Canadian Rockies Guiding on these great tools! Short and light but very well balanced and incredibly precise. No hacking swing here..they offer a nice older school flick and when combining them with the cascade blades these tools become ready for anything. Low angle rambles, no problem there agile handling, and movable upper pommel help the climber adapt to any lower angle surface comfortably and easily. On solid hard steep ice climbing with plenty of cleaning, they're no compromise...these tools are great! They have a little less clearance for your fingers so watch out not to punch into the ice. By far I think these tools might be the best do it all tools around. An awesome choice for anyone who likes to spend lots of time on ice and climbing where balancy hand matching on tools isn't a must.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tools, Good Price. I have three sets of ice tools -- the Cobras, 2014 Vipers, and a set of Fuels. The Vipers are the tools I lend to friends. They swing well, and are very similar to the Cobras in terms of geometry and use. The aluminum shaft can take a litte more abuse than the carbon fiber of the cobras, but it doesn't feel as good in the hand -- it's more slippery if gripping high on the shaft, and translates more impact to the climber when swinging. By swapping out leashes, picks, hammers and adze, and the strike and fang, I can customize these tools for the climbing goal of the day, whether that's dry tooling, mixed climbing, technical alpine, or blue water ice. Similar to the Cobra, the grip is a slight bit small for my hands. More customization would be an improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All arounders This, as advertised and stated in reviews, is a great all around tool. I have used these in the park and also as a classic mountaineering axe. It's awesome to have a pair of tools that you can be confident in regardless of location and conditions. With ice tools, a lot comes down to preference and for me these don't stick as easily as some other tools I have swung when climbing the steeper stuff, but that could just be my caveman swing. When you combine the price with their versatility, it's hard to go wrong with the Vipers, especially if trying to decide on a first pair of tools.
