    Peace of mind at a low weight.

    The Glacier Ice Axe from Petzl offers you security in the mountains, something that is often in short supply. The anodized aluminum shaft is lightweight, corrosion-resistant, and extremely durable. A grooved lower handle, notched into the shaft itself, ensures that you have a solid place to grip if you are in a more technical section. The pick and adze are made of heat-treated steel for durability, and the bottom spike is made of stainless steel, letting it be easily plunged into icy ground. Holes for clipping carabiners on both the top and bottom let you easily rig this axe as an anchor in an emergency situation.

    What do you think about this product?

    Have questions about this product?

    Durable, lightweight and convenient

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I think that the Glacier is a lot like Bd's Raven, but a little bit lighter.
    It is a really functional anchor with multiple options for clipping in direct.
    It seems durable, and I expect it to last, but I'll know more next season.

    Climb that GD Mountain

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a great axe. It's light, strong, and gets the job done. Both ends of the axe penetrate hard snow and ice effectively. My buddies have the BD raven axe which is a great axe but this one is a bit lighter. One of the greatest aspects of this axe is the rounded edges on the shovel side so there's less risk of cutting your jacket when you're self arresting. Zero complaints about this product.

    Just received the axe, and the pick is surprisingly dull, but not from damage. It looks like there may be a clear coating on the metal, dulling the edges. Is this normal? Can it be removed?

    Hi Tom,

    Great to hear from you and thanks for reaching out to us for your questions!

    So generally speaking you don't really need a sharp Ice Axe at all. As long you can lay your weight into the axe if you should ever have to self-arrest then the pick will most certainly bite into the snow/ice for you.
