- Black Diamond Raven Mountaineering Axe
Redesigned with an up to 50 gram reduction in weight, this classic piolet optimizes comfort and ease of use when glacier traveling and mountaineering. Like all of our piolets, the anodized shaft is built from lightweight, aircraft aluminum alloy for high strength. The investment-cast, one-piece stainless steel head is comfortable to wrap your fingers around, and the slim, neutral pick and aggressive teeth are engineered for secure self-arrest. The Raven with Grip is equipped with a Slider Leash and a dual-density, molded grip for when the going gets steep or when you need to chop steps or a bivy platform.
This tool performs well on short steep sections where it can be used like a modern ice tool. The straight handle makes this a great piolet for great security and versatility while holding the axe head.
