Edelrid Raid Ice Axe
Closeouts. Edelrid's Raid ice axe is a versatile ice climbing essential. Designed for mixed climbing conditions, the Raid offers lightweight aluminum construction for easier ascents and an ergonomic handle with safe knuckle protection. The hardened steel pick and bottom spikes cut through ice with ease, and -- thanks to its modular construction -- the interchangeable adze can be removed, replaced or swapped-out with a hammer head to suit a variety of conditions.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by WhiteHope from CA on Tuesday, May 9, 2017I use this solely for mountaineering, however there have been a few vertical mixed climb sections that the slight downward facing angle makes a huge difference.
The axe comes with insulated plastic tape, but it's doesn't wear well. It will peel when prolonged to cool conditions.
The undulation at the top make a nice palm grip.
Overall, couldn't beat the value for the price; would definitely recommend.
Reviewed by Trevor el Dragon from Virginia on Monday, February 13, 2017Used the 60 cm model on Mount Rainier last fall (I'm 5'11"). The axe performed wonderfully in glacier travel as well as simulated self arrest and crevasse rescue situations. The construction feels solid. This is a "technical (T)" rated axe, so it should work on more aggressive terrain, though I have not used it to climb extremely steep or vertical pitches.
