Anaconda Cup Light
The refined style of the Anaconda Cup Light is Simond's answer to the technical requirements of demanding ice and mixed routes. The considerably reduced weight of the tool, thanks to the replacement of the adze and hammer with an aluminium insert, allows the climber to push back the limits of fatigue. With its center of weight towards the front of the pick, the tool ensures solid placement even with tired arms.
The aluminium alloy trigger can be easily attached and adapted to the desired height on the shaft thanks to two small screws (provided). Our new forged chromoly steel picks give increased durability and even higher performance results.
Handle with optional finger rest:
Finger rest can be fitted to desired point on handle with 2 screws. Ultra-sticky rubber grip on handle gives comfortable support in lower section. Hand is locked to the axe.
Comes with fitted aluminium insert. Compatible with Naja adze or hammer.

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.
