The Petzl Summit is a modern mountaineering axe that ticks all the boxes for a great all round performer.
Incorporating an number of innovations such as a rubberised and cranked shaft, the Summit axe is one of the best of the new breed of mountaineering axes around. Lightweight, but still beautifully balanced the Summit handles superbly.
The curved shaft provides the necessary clearance on steep or icy terrain and allows easy storage between you and your pack on the move. The forged steel head is light, but not TOO light, giving the Summit a real competent, balanced feel. The texturised rubber covered shaft gives a positive and sure grip, even with thick winter gloves or mitts.
