Perfect for your fast and light ski mountaineering missions, the Corsa Ice Axe is the lightest ice axe in the world! The clean design provides amazing performance especially considering how little it weighs. Perfect for low-angle glacier travel, ski mountaineering and adventure racing. The 7075-T6 aluminum alloy head and shaft meet all CE and UIAA requirements for strength and durability. However, the Corsa is not recommended for ice climbing, rugged mixed terrain, or for intense step chipping.
‚ Forged aluminum pick and adze
‚ Ideal for snow travel and self arrest
‚ Can be used as an anchor for glacier rescue and traversing cornices
‚ Nylon spike plug on 60 and 70cm lengths keeps ice out of the shaft
‚ Optional sliding leash (1305) easily attaches to the shaft
This is the best piece of insurance you can carry with you on ski/board mountaineering missions. I have carried a regular axe for miles and never needed it, only to need one when I left it at the car when I wanted to drop some weight. I never know this axe on my pack, but I'm glad when it's there. A great tool for ski/board mountaineering.
