The Petzl Glacier Literide is a lightweight specialist touring axe. The Glacier Literide has a lightweight yet very durable steel pick for excellent anchoring and the lightweight aluminium shaft has a cut handle for a better grip and an anodized finish for protection against rust. This is a lightweight but high performance axe for ski touring and mountaineering and fast and light alpine climbing.

The toothed steel pick has a technical profile and is narrow at the tip for secure anchoring on hard ice whilst the stainless steel spike will penetrate hard snow well. The adze is designed to give a comfortable supporting surface whilst being able to cut efficiently and the head and spike are equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling. This is the perfect axe for skiing on glaciers and steep slopes.

Petzl Glacier Features

  • High quality and lightweight steel pick and adze

Petzl Glacier Literide Review
Robin | April 2nd, 2017
A well made, beautifully balanced, lightweight axe. It assuredly got me over steep and exposed terrain on a recent ski tour in the Silvretta. I'm 5' 8 and the 50 cm shaft felt perfect. The forged spike and straight shaft means the axe drives in vertically very well, which is where a majority of its use will be when cramponing up steep cols. An axe is an indispensable piece of kit for ski touring, and this one does the required job perfectly.
