Cool Ice Axe

When it comes to mountaineering, a good ice axe can mean the difference between life and death. Noticing technical setbacks and an overall lack of comfort of current axes, designer Katrina Epperson developed the Condor to be more ergonomic and easy to use. Its curved shaft allows the whole hand to grip the axe in a natural position. An injection molded rubber head provides additional comfort and protects hands from the cold, hard steel.  All it’s missing is the mountain!
