Petzl's Glacier Literide Ice Axe is a great all-rounder if you're heading into the mountains. With an ultralight classification on this axe it's surprisingly versatile. The 50cm length lends itself well to the approach walk as well as being easy to store when not in use.

The design is well though out and practical which is exactly what you need. It is easy to drive into snow and ice and gives you a lot of different options in regards to climbing, anchoring and chopping with a well made pick and adze. The spike provides an additional feature that many other axes of this weight or price point don't. The simple but highly effective notches on the shaft provide a good amount of extra grip.

Help and advice:
  • Compact: measuring 50 cm, the GLACIER LITERIDE is as compact as it is light, and therefore easily transportable on a pack.
  • Lightness and comfort:
    - the upper part of the pick offers excellent grip (comfortable supporting surface)
    - the pick and the shaft are lighter, yet extremely robust
  • Very good anchoring qualities in hard snow and ice, thanks to:
    - the profile of the pick, for sure and stable anchoring
    - the toothed steel pick, thinner at the tip (3 mm)
    - the stainless steel spike, for very good penetration in hard snow
  • High strength and practical aspects:
    - high-quality steel pick (identical to picks of technical ice axes)
    - very strong steel adze with an edge designed for efficient cutting of steps
    - head and spike equipped with holes for clipping a carabiner or attaching a sling
    - high-quality aluminum shaft (aluminum 7075, used in aeronautics), with anodized finish for excellent rust protection
    - handle cut into the shaft provides better grip when used for technical ice climbing
