rig for ice, mixed or alpine!
New for 2013 - the APEX is top choice
for steep ice, mixed or alpine. Well balanced,
fantastic clearance and customizable to both your
style and that of the route. From the top down
- one piece T Rated APEX PICK is fitted with either
hammer or adze and equipped with removable weights
- to add or subtract 1.6 oz / 45 g per tool. Weights
on for ice, weights off for delicate dry tooling.
This assembly is secured with two hex head bolts
in the vice-like aluminum "jaw". As
radical as the APEX's shaft looks, you'll appreciate
less wrist strain (due to a more neutral position),
ease of handling and greater "reach"
over and around obstructions (less wobble on mixed
placements too). Down below are two bolted on
HAND RESTS and a sticky hand grip (practically
all the comforts of home). For mountain routes
with snow approaches, leave the RESTS behind so
you can plunge the shaft in deep for support and
