You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

  • A durable easy-to-swing all round ice tool for all grades of Scottish winter and Continental icefall climbing. It can also be stripped down for alpine use.
    The Viper’s hydroformed shaft extends through the grip for maximum rigidity and a responsive feel, and it comes with a Titan Pick, ideal for Scottish mixed.

The modular head allows for easy changing of picks and swapping between hammer and adze.
