Product description
A long snow route with a couple pitches of ice is the hardest type of climbing for which to select an appropriate tool. It used to be that you could either have a good ice tool that sucks for self-arrest or a standard ice axe that can barely climb a pitch of easy ice. Not anymore. Black Diamond designed the Venom Ice Axe to self-arrest and plunge into the snow easily but still offer good ice performance.
  • Ideal counterpart to your ice axe on a mountaineering trip
  • The interchangeable, classically curved pick is designed to provide solid placements while ice climbing as well as to self-arrest securely
  • The Venom's slight bend at the top of the shaft increases vertical performance without sacrificing the ability to plant the shaft in the snow
  • Replaceable pick can be re-sharpened after each trip
  • An ideal alpine leash, the Lockdown, is included with this versatile axe
It's hard to know which tool to use when climbing long, technical couloirs. Part traditional piolet and part technical ice tool, the Black Diamond Venom Hammer swings into ice well thanks to a curved shaft with plenty of clearance, while the comfortable grip and included leash provide peace of mind when self-arresting becomes more of a possibility. The Venom Hammer comes with a chromoly steel tech pick and is fitted with a traditional spike at the handle for doing more traditional mountaineering routes. 

  • Chromoly steel tech pick
  • Stainless steel head
  • Aluminum shaft
  • Dual-density grip
  • Lockdown leash included
  • CEN-B certified
" Half technical ice tool and half classic piolet, the Black Diamond Venom Adze Ice Axe is ideal for steep alpine climbs and ski mountaineering routes where some overhead swinging may be involved. The classic pick is made of a light but strong chromoly steel that is ideal for self-arresting. The curved aluminum shaft provides additional clearance when ascending steep colouirs, and the stainless steel spike provides an extra point of balance when traveling across snow fields.

  • Stainless steel head and spike
  • Chromoly classic pick
  • Aluminum shaft with dual density handle
  • Lockdown leash included
  • CEN-B certified
