Modular ice axe for technical mountaineering.
The SUM'TEC ice axe represents versatility: it adapts easily to any mountaineering activity, from classic to technical. It is completely modular, allowing it to be optimized for the objective. The TRIGREST handrest, adjustable without tools, and the compatibility of the ice axe with most Petzl accessories (PUR'ICE and DRY picks, MASSELOTTES...) ensure the efficiency required for difficult sections.
- ICE pick is tapered at the tip for easy penetration in any ice
- the TRIGREST handrest allows the position of the hand or the index finger to be adjusted into climbing mode quickly and without tools
- shaft has steel spike for solid support in piolet-canne mode
- curved shaft for efficient anchoring, while protecting the hand
- shaft is straight enough for efficient planting into snow and walking comfortably
- adding weights (optional) improves anchoring qualities
- compatible with Petzl accessories for QUARK, NOMIC and ERGO ice axes

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.
