Here's what other sites are saying:

A lightweight telescopic touring axe which can be used for support whilst walking.


Combining a telescoping trekking pole and a fully-functioning ice axe, the SNOWSCOPIC is the only piece of equipment you'll need for trekking, approaches and easy snow climbs. Extend the bottom section for use as a handy trekking pole; shorten it when the going gets steeper. Stainless steel pick and adze is designed comfortable gripping. Equipped with a carbide tip.


The Petzl Snowscopic Mountain Axe is a hybrid glacier travel ice axe and telescoping trekking pole all in one. It's an indispensables tool on long glacier walks or for moderate climbs with a long trail approach where the built in trekking pole improves balance and reduces stress on your knees.
