The Raven Ice Axe is Black Diamond's award winning take on the classic mountaineering axe. This traditional combination of curved pick and straight shaft has been used on classic climbs all around the world for years, and it's really no surprise why: functionality is timeless.
The long curve of the investment-cast stainless steel head offers a comfortable, ergonomic grip when used in the 'cane' position, while the pick is engineered for quick and secure self arresting. The straight shaft is made from aircraft-grade aluminium to provide lightweight durability and ends in a robust spike for superior support and stability on tough ascents. Both the head and spike include a large eyelet to accommodate a carabiner clip or leash.
The updated pick and adze geometry allow for more secure placements and efficient chopping, and the revamped spike adds better bite on those icy placements with improved plunge-ability. The durable aircraft-grade aluminum shaft is also improved with a trapezoidal cross-section for a more comfortable, better grip.
Well suited to any alpine challenge, from negotiating gullies and couloirs, through steep traverses and self arrest situations, this traditional mountaineering axe from Black Diamond is an essential all-rounder for any alpinism enthusiast.
