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