Weather your clipping bolts in Catalunya, summiting alpine peaks or pushing your limits on splitter cracks in the Utah desert-life as a climber can cover a lot of ground and the Black Diamond Axis 33 is built to handle it all. Designed with the same versatile, guide-style platform as the Epic packs with a zippered top opening in place of a lid, the Axis features our ergoACTIV suspension system to move with you whether you're approaching the crag or carrying the pack on route.

Bolt clipping in Catalunya, alpine summits above Zermatt and splitter cracks in the Utah desert-life as a climber can cover a lot of ground and the Black Diamond Axis 33 is built to handle it all.

Some packs sit on your back like a pillowcase full of rocks, but the Black Diamond Axis 33 Backpack rides as smoothly as a finely-tuned sportscar, thanks to its ergoActiv suspension that moves with you, eliminating hot spots and allowing for more natural movement so you can cover more ground with less effort. Of course, the Axis is designed with vertical endeavors in mind, but just imagine how many ice or rock pitches you could knock out in a day without your pack pulling you back to earth. The Axis has a fat-free design, forgoing the unnecessary bells and whistles in favor of ultra-functional features like PickPocket ice tool holders, crampon straps, and a three-point haul system if you end up pulling it up behind you. The SwingArm shoulder straps distribute the load evenly, and the vented, thermo-formed back panel keeps you cool and comfortable when you're pulling through the crux. Incorporate a tuck-away helmet holder, rope strap, and hydration compatibility to keep you well-watered on longer approaches, and you've got the fully-featured but remarkably trim Axis.
