The ultimate hybrid axe for technical couloirs and rugged alpine terrain, the Black Diamond Venom bridges the gap between classic piolet and technical ice tool. The curved upper shaft provides added clearance during technical ice and snow sections, while the traditional spike makes for smooth plunging on the uphill. The dual-density grip and included Lockdown Leash increase security when things get dicey. The classic Venom pick has the double curve that is great for self arrests and mountaineering head grip. The Venom tech pick has a more technical reverse-curve for high angle penetration and good self arrest functionality.
