For rugged alpine terrain, the Camp Alpina ice axe has few peers. 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 sleeping platform. In addition, the sculpted head with the thermoplastic cap creates a comfortable hand grip when using the axe as a cane.
With durable forged chromoly construction on the head and shaft, the Alpina Ice Axe pierces snow and ice for reliable performance on rugged alpine terrain.
