The Glacier Ice Axe from Petzl offers you security in the mountains, something that is often in short supply. The anodized aluminum shaft is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and extremely durable. A grooved lower handle, notched into the shaft itself, ensures that you have a solid place to grip if you are in a more technical section. The pick and adze are made of heat-treated steel for durability, and the bottom spike is made of stainless steel, letting it be easily plunged into icy ground. Holes for clipping carabiners on both the top and bottom let you easily rig this axe as an anchor in an emergency situation.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
