Manufacturer's Description

Many people have requested a light and strong mountaineering axe with superior steep ice performance. Stanley Alpine is filling this need with 2 models of mountaineering axes.

Both models feature a pick that provides deep, secure penetration in snow like a traditional axe, but also has an aggressive tip that works very well in steep water ice. All are available in custom lengths at no extra charge.

Available models:
steel head with titanium shaft
titanium head with titanium shaft
