The Blue Ice Blackbird Ice Axe is a lightweight (330g - 49cm) axe for general mountaineering and glacier travel. We stock the Blackbird in 3 sizes, 54cm, 60cm and 67cm to cover most user heights. The Blackbird is made from an aircraft grade anodized, sandblasted aluminium shaft that keeps the overall weight down and for durability it has a Chromoly steel head and adze. This is a great axe for ski tourers, summer Alpine climbers and Scottish winter walkers & mountaineers that will provide security on steep icy terrain.
The Blackbird comes with pick, spike and adze protectors to protect the rest of your kit from sharp points in transit. It has a dual textured lower grip to help with security on high, overhead axe placements. THis is a Type 1 or B rated axe so is perfect for general mountaineering and glacier travel but is not suitable for more technical climbing.
