The Petzl Sum'Tec is the perfect compromise between an ice climbing axe and a classic mountaineering axe. Designed to be extremely versatile, lightweight and still technical, it is easy to see why this axe is a best seller. Easy to use in both piolet- canne and piolet- traction modes, as it has a stainless steel spike and slightly curved shaft, as well as a Petzl trigrest hand rest and Alpix pick (3.5mm) which is forged into a banana shape (useful in the latter mode). This is designed for effective and sustainable penetration into the ice, and is uickly and securely replaced with a unique screw lock system. This ensures efficiency in more technical passages, as well as bergschrunds, ice gullies.

The previously mentioned TRIGREST allows multiple hand grip possibilities, thanks to the simple, tool-free manual adjustment system. The Petzl Sum'Tec can easily be clipped to a carabiner through the wide oval holes in the head and in the spike, making sure they are always close, safe and at hand.

  • Stainless steel spike ensures excellent grip on rock
  • Lightly curved handle protects the hand when climbing
  • Available in adze or hammer versions:
  • --SUM’TEC adze version for efficient cleaning of snow and ice. Available in 52 and 59 cm shaft lengths
  • --SUM’TEC hammer version for easy piton placement. Hammer is now lighter and features keys for tightening bolts of 8 to 10 mm. Available only in 52 cm
