The Petzl Summit is a classic mountaineering axe with an anodized aluminium shaft and a shaped handle for excellent strength and plunging. It is lightweight yet offers good anchoring performance and has a straight lower shaft for plunging and curved upper shaft for use on steep ice. The pick is a thin 3mm with toothed tip for good security in hard snow and ice and it thickens in the middle for better performance in soft snow.
The highly durable steel adze gives comfortable support and is tilted to direct the axe into the snow and has edges designed for efficient carving. The spike is made of stainless steel for durability and good penetration in hard snow, it also features a hole for attachment, as does the head. This is a great axe for classic mountaineering with the features to allow it to perform well on more technical terrain.
