Petzl - Sum'Tec Ice Axe (Discontinued)

Availability: Out of stock

Stock #: G095- Closeout

The logical evolution of the classic mountaineering ice axe, the SUM'TEC combines the qualities of a technical mountaineering ice axe - thanks to its curved shaft - and a classic mountaineering ice axe. Light and versatile, this ice axe has an adjustable hand rest and an interchangeable pick.

  • The TRIGREST hand rest improves grip efficiency. Its position can be adjusted as needed, without tools - in the lower position, it improves grip and facilitates progression in steep sections; in the upper position, it allows the shaft to easily penetrate the snow.
  • Ice axe designed for mountaineers looking to reduce weight (485 g for 52 cm)
  • ALPIX curved pick is interchangeable and adapted to difficult alpine climbing
  • Shaft is made of extruded, ultra-light aluminum with a curved upper section. This shape provides good clearance during ice climbing or in the snow and helps avoid impacts to the hands.
  • The pick (3.5 mm) is designed for efficient penetration into ice and guarantees solid hooking on rock
  • Pick is quickly and securely replaced with the unique screw lock system
  • Wide oval holes in the head and in the spike facilitate clipping a carabiner
  • Tilted adze directs the axe correctly into the snow (piolet-canne usage)
  • Stainless steel spike ensures excellent grip on rock
  • Available in two lengths
