Description

Two pieces of gear are easier to carry than four.

Reduce your gear with the Petzl Snowscopic Axe and Trekking Pole. By combining your axes and poles, you drop weight and eliminate the need to waste time switching equipment in and on your pack. When you’re hiking on flats, extend the trekking pole to reduce fatigue and aid balance. When the route gets steep and turns into a scramble, shorten the Snowscopic to give you the safety and climbing power of an ice axe.
  • Carbide tip is extremely hard and durable to last long
  • 4mm toothed pick is design to work well in snow and ice
  • Telescoping section extends to 105mm

Will you be getting any more of these ice axe trekking poles in stock?

Hey Greg,

I don't see any on order at the moment. However, that doesn't mean we won't get some in when winter is here. I'd just check back periodically.

hi. Do you do deliveries to Santiago?

Nice While Carrying a Pack

This axe/pole works nice when carrying a heavy winter pack. It gives you some safety and stabilization when you are climbing and traversing.

Love it or hate it

There seem to be two schools of thought about the Petzl Snoscopic; folks either love it or hate it. I love it. It's billed as being aimed at moderate trekking use where you might want a light ice axe. Dunno about that. I use it for dlimbing and skiing the Colorado 14ers. I have yet to fall, but on big steeps but I sure feel better skiing with my Snoscopic in one hand in case I have to self-arrest.

how comfortable is this to use in trekking pole mode as compared to an actual trekking pole that has a sculpted hand grip?

Responded on

It is aa little abnormal, if you wanted a trekking pole that can self arrest try a BD whippet ski pole
