My vote: None ( 1 avg )


An extreme tool for demanding mixed routes and ice. The exceptionally ergonomic handle enables accurate placement and effective penetration of rock and ice. The axe's handle can be adjusted by installing a spacer to enable smaller hands to use it or when climbing without or with thin gloves. The TPR material ensures good grip both on the top and bottom grips. Thanks to its new geometry, the ice pick causes minimal ice shattering. The steel spike is designed to be particularly robust and load-bearing (6 kN).

  • Aggressively curved shaft provides additional clearance, while the balanced construction ensures accurate placement and penetration on rock and ice
  • Modular construction can be adapted to suit all uses and conditions
  • Supplied with grip tape and allen key
  • Ergonomically-shaped handle with finger hole for a secure grip when swimming
  • Load-bearing spike (6 kN) made of steel with opening for attaching a carabiner
  • Hardened steel waterfall pick for minimal shattering
  • Accelerator that can be optionally mounted on the pick to increase impact force
  • Matching pick for mixed climbing available as an optional extra

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.

Gear Junkie Review no rating given just a review

I tested the Edelrid Rage ice axes on 400- to 600-foot-tall waterfall ice in the backcountry surrounding Palmer and Valdez over a weeklong excursion in February. The routes were at or near my limit of ice-climbing ability. This season in Alaska was particularly snowy and cold, so the ice was often brittle, but the routes were solid. Temperatures ranged from 0 to just over 10 degrees.

UK Climbing Gear Review no rating given just a review

I've said a lot for a preliminary review but I make no apologies for being excited by the new Rage. So far this seems a well -designed and well-made tool, and it's certainly fun to climb with. Perhaps with the exception of days out soloing grade I and II ground, I can't see myself wanting to climb with any other tool for the time being, and my experience so far makes me want to climb plenty more routes with them! I will report back as I do.

For anyone wanting to see the Rage being used on much harder routes than I will ever climb, check out the Instagram account of South Tyrolean mountain guide Simon Gietl. He is sponsored by Edelrid so of course he would be using them, but you can see he is climbing very impressive mixed and pure ice routes with Rages, and they are clearly not slowing him down. Gietl is quoted in this article -  it is advertorial but has some interesting comments about what the designers were trying to achieve with the new design.
