Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe
An ultra lightweight ice axe, the Black Diamond
Raven Ice Axe is ideal for mountaineering and classical alpinism. A lightweight aircraft aluminum alloy shaft and stainless steel head and adze allow the Raven Pro to cut weight without sacrificing strength or performance. The pick itself has an aggressive curve and teeth designed for self arrest, and the adze is ideal for cutting foot holds into hard snow or cutting away dead ice or webbing. The head also has a hole large enough to hook a carabiner or attach a leash. The spike on the bottom of the handle enables the ice axe to be used to check for crevasses or to be used as a walking stick for traversing snow or ice safely. If you plan on climbing above the snow line, an ice axe may just be your most important safety tool, and the Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe is designed to function flawlessly right when you need it most.
