Walking Axes

Ice Axes - Walking

Usually straight shafted, with a neutral angled pick, walking axes are a cost effective option for the winter walker and mountaineer. A B rated shaft means they're not as strong as a mountaineering axe (although still very strong) and are designed for self arrest, cutting steps and plunging into deep snow to aid progress on easy angled slopes.
