Half technical ice tool and half classic piolet, the Black Diamond Venom Adze Ice Axe is ideal for steep alpine climbs and ski mountaineering routes where some overhead swinging may be involved. The classic pick is made of a light but strong chromoly steel that is ideal for self-arresting. The curved aluminum shaft provides additional clearance when ascending steep colouirs, and the stainless steel spike provides an extra point of balance when traveling across snow fields.
