The Swift Ice Axe is Black Diamond's toughest classic mountaineering ice tool. As the only piolet in their range to carry a T (Technical) rating, it brings state of the art construction and a technical profile to the traditional mountaineering tool.
This excellent hybrid axe combines the classic curved head of a general mountaineering axe with an ergonomic shaft like those more regularly seen on technical axes, meaning it's well suited to varied ascents. With it's strong, sleek shaft ending in a robust spike, this versatile tool will plunge just as well as any alpine axe, but it's curved profile is more than capable of handling technical ice sections and varied climbs. A FlickLock™ adjustable pommel provides ample hand support and a secure levered swing on those tougher sections. The hot forged stainless steel head penetrates tough ice and snow conditions for a steady and secure hold, and it's classical curved pick shape will perform in any self-arrest situation.
Whether you use it for general mountaineering, technical climbing or both, with it's superb construction, classic features and technical rating, the Swift Ice Axe from Black Diamond will make swift work of just about any alpine ascent.
