The Petzl Nomic axe is a climbing tool with exceptional versatility and durability on both rock and ice. The handle of the Petzl Nomic has been ergonomically designed for secure grip which can be adjusted to enable multiple grip possibilities. With a severe looking head, the pick can deeply penetrate the ice to secure the climber on the route, and yet can be pulled out easily for swift movement. The Nomic has a modular designed head with two removable pick weights to help with balance, as well as allowing for a superb swing action during use. A precise tool which follows through with every movement for great performance.
