DMM Apex Axe 50cm
A new, radically curved technical tool for hard icefalls and modern mixed climbing. The Apex is a superbly balanced precision tool ready to tackle steep ice, massive mountain routes and mixed test pieces. The curved shaft provides an ergonomic hand position and impressive clearance around bulging ice, while still remaining great at moving on easier ground.
Can be used with leashes in traditional climbing mode, but excels without leashes for the more modern approach.
The new one piece T rated Ice and Mixed picks cover all bases. The head and handle are double riveted onto the shaft letting it handle the demands of winter climbing. The straight handle on the Apex makes using it in snow and ice easily when you're moving on less steep terrain.
