It is at all times a good suggestion to have Petzl’s Ride Ice Axe in your ski pack when the route gets icy and steep. This ultralight, compact ice axe is an crucial tool when crossing glaciers or mountain climbing steep, icy peaks. Its steel head tapers down to a trifling 3mm for simple penetration, and the shaft offers a slight curve and grip for simple handling. Petzl designed this axe with a short 45cm length and beveled head so you’ll pack it inside backpacks to further reduce risk of injury.
