Edelrid Riot Hammer Ice Axe - 50cm
Closeouts. The all-round ice tool for both technical mountaineering and ice-climbing, Edelrid's Riot Hammer ice axe offers a balanced design and a hardened steel waterfall pick for secure climbing on all types of ice. The ergonomic double grip ensures excellent control for a strong, solid swing and good penetration in hard ice, and the narrow shaft allows quick and easy storage when not in use.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mene the Alpinist from Mexico on Sunday, June 4, 2017This is one of the best technical ice axes I have ever tried, it has a perfect balance for the swing at the ice. I recomendaciones it for technical mountaineering and some moderate ice/mixed climbing. Totally recommended if you want to evolve from classic to technical mountaineering and the price is amazing.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Climber Junkie from Canada on Friday, March 17, 2017A quality tool. The only thing it lacks is a trigger rest and a little tape on the shaft. Both can be purchased separately.
Reviewed by Drew from Portland, OR on Sunday, February 19, 2017These tools are great. I recently used them climbing in Ouray Ice Park for 3 days. They are aggressive enough for technical ice and also great for steeper AIII+ mountaineering routes. The curve isn't super aggressive like some mixed tools, but the tools reached over bulges just fine. They are very similar in nature to the Petzl Quarks which I have used as well. These are a tad heavier in the head, which I like. The extra weight really gets you a good stick. These are about half the price of the Quarks. Score. I'm tempted to get a second pair for my girlfriend.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Justin from Tennessee on Wednesday, November 16, 2016Haven't had a chance to use it yet, but its a stout and well made axe. Have no reservations that this thing will work perfectly.
