Compact and lightweight, the Petzl Glacier Literide ice axe is an excellent choice for ski mountaineering if you want to climb some peaks as well. Although super light, it is stronger than most similar axes due to its very high-quality steel pick and ferule.

Compact:

  • measuring 50 cm, it is as compact as it is light, and therefore easily transportable on a rucksack.

Lightness and comfort:

  • the upper part of the pick offers excellent grip (comfortable supporting surface).
  • the pick and the shaft are lighter, yet extremely robust.
Very good anchoring qualities in hard snow and ice, thanks to:
  • the profile of the pick, for sure and stable anchoring.
  • the toothed steel pick, thinner at the tip (3 mm).
  • the stainless steel spike, for very good penetration in hard snow.
High strength and practical aspects:
  • high-quality steel pick (identical to picks of technical ice axes).
  • very strong steel adze with an edge designed for efficient cutting of steps.
  • head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a karabiner or attaching a sling.
  • high-quality aluminium shaft (aluminium 7075, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent rust protection.
  • handle cut into the shaft provides better grip when used for technical ice climbing.
