With its super-strong T-rated construction on the head and shaft, the C.A.M.P Alpina Ice Axe is the right choice for intensive use on rugged alpine terrain. The unique forged chromoly steel head delivers superior strength and durability. A refined pick provides excellent performance both when swinging into ice and during a self arrest. The curve and arc of the adze have been optimized for maximum cutting performance, a feature greatly appreciated when chopping a platform. In addition, the sculpted head with the thermoplastic cap creates a comfortable hand grip when using the axe as a cane.
