The Petzl Nomic Ice Axe allows the entire rock climbing repertoire to be transferred to ice. Adjustable ergonomic handle offers multiple grip modes and limits the risk of snagging when switching hands. The length of the handle may be adjusted to fit the size of the hand and glove. The ICE pick allows easy penetration in any type of ice, and pulls out easily. Interchangeable ICE pick is tapered to 3mm for easy penetration. Because of the head's modular construction, it adapts to any situation. Griptape on the upper handle provides better grip and thermal insulation. Serrated blade under the Griprest for better hold.
