Petzl Glacier Literide Mountaineering Axes

Write a Review

Compact and lightweight, the GLACIER LITERIDE ice axe is the perfect choice for ski mountaineering. It also has the benefit of great anchoring efficiency thanks to its very high-quality steel pick, guaranteeing both confident anchoring and great durability.

  • Compact: measuring 50 cm, the GLACIER LITERIDE is as compact as it is light, and therefore easily transportable on a pack.
  • the upper part of the pick offers excellent grip (comfortable supporting surface)
  • the pick and the shaft are lighter, yet extremely robust
  • 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-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
  • Certification(s): CE, UIAA
