Collecting every piece of gear takes a little time.
We think it's worth the wait.
Give us a moment to collect those options for you.
Search by model name only, and spelling counts. Protip: Type slowly and wait for the auto-complete.
If you’ve already used other filters, this search bar will not override them.
Retired gear and unfilterable gear (missing key specs like price/weight) will not appear with this search.
It can be frustrating to find a piece of gear that you like, and then have no buying options. This filter aims to ease that problem. In the future we plan to add non-US retailers to this list and possibly call out each retailer directly.
We feel a little weird calling out Amazon separately as we're not huge fans of this mega-corp. We do this because we're partners with Amazon in multiple countries, so if somebody from the US, Canada, or UK clicks an Amazon link, it'll go to their country-specific Amazon page (when possible). At the moment, this is the only way to find non-US buying options on the site.
The full retail price in US dollars as stated by the brand/manufacturer/US distributer.
With non-US products, we have statically converted the price to US dollars.
This static conversion also means it's possible that there will be some misleading figures at times. The original price and currency will be noted on the individual product pages.
This is the list of accessories we collect for all ice axes, ice tools, crampons and ice screws.
Some of the accessories overlap in their duties, like cases that can hold crampons and/or ice screws. Or some pick protectors could work on both ice axes and ice tools. This is why it's in one big list of accessories, instead of separated into sub-categories.
Adze: One option for the back of an ice axe/ice tool. This is good for chopping steps in the ice.
Anti-Ball Plates: This goes on the bottom of a crampon to prevent snow buildup.
Bails (toe/heel): What holds the crampon to the boot - this can refer to the front or back of the crampon harness.
Case / Protectors / Guards: A case to hold crampons, ice screws and other pointy tools / protects the pointy parts of the equipment (ice axe pick or crampon spikes)
Front Points / Spurs: Front points and heel spurs sold individually or as a pair to be used on crampons or stiff boots as crampon-type add-ons.
Hammers: Another option for the back of an ice axe/ice tool. This is good for hammering in pitons or pickets or other snow anchors.
Leashes: One end attaches to an ice axe (or ice tool) and the other hooks around the climber's wrist. These do not have stretchy material.
Linking Bar: The bar that links the front and back of the crampon together aka flex bar, center bar.
Picks: Often these are replacements for ice tools. You can also buy picks made for different climbing specialties.
Pommel / Grip (aka Triggers / Thumb Rests / Handles / Handle inserts): Anything that affects the grip of the tool, particularly if it's adding a pommel / grip / trigger, or if it's related to the handle size.
Tether: These have 2 mini-carabiners (one for each ice tool) and one loop that attaches to your harness. They allow for leachless climbing and they DO have stretchy material.
The list of manufacturers and brands that we have all the technical specs for.
If a brand is missing from this list (like Austri Alpin, Climbing Technology, Faders, Ice Rock, Singing Rock and Stubai), scroll to the bottom of this page to see all the unfilterable gear we track, and ideally it'll be there.
If you don't see the brand you're looking for in the unfilterable products area, definitely send us a note so we can look into it further.
We do our very best to find and display every technical spec for every piece of climbing gear in the world. But sometimes we just can’t dig up a spec or two (usually it's the official price and weight). Sadly, this means not every product is available for filtering and sorting :(
If we allowed products that are missing key specs to display in the results above, these incomplete products would need to appear no matter what filters you chose. This would make the filtered results cluttered and misleading. So instead of leaving out these incomplete products entirely, we're listing them below:
