How to use Singing Rock Ice Tool and Ice Axe, warnings, maintenance, transport, storage and lifespan with instructional pictures.
Versatile ice axe for a wide range of use.
Given its modular design, the ice axe can be adapted to a particular ascent.
Especially suitable for demanding technical mountaineering and ice climbing.
Bent shaft makes hooking in steep ice or rock easy while creating an optimum grip angle.
Hot forged head allows use of adze/hammer and choice of ICE or DRY pick (for demanding mixed climbing the ice axe can be used without adze / hammer).
Head shape is designed so that it can be jammed into the cracks and to provide support for climbing in soft snow.
The weight of the head is concentrated in the trajectory of the swing making penetration into hard ice as easy as possible.
Possible to connect a carabiner to the head or hang the ice axe on PORTER.
Ergonomically shaped handle is made of dual-density plastic for thermal insulation and safe grip.
A carabiner or BUNGEE tether may be attached to the spike.
BOXER protects fingers against injury and getting drenched and enables leashless climbing.
RHINO hook is designed for higher grip in demanding ice/mixed climbing or, in contrast, in climbing snow slopes.
You may remove both accessories (BOXER and RHINO) and get a light ice axe for classic technical mountaineering.

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
