Black Diamond Venom Ice Axe

The ultimate hybrid axe for technical couloirs and rugged alpine terrain, the Black Diamond Venom bridges the gap between classic piolet and technical ice tool.

Good all around axe

I use this axe for General mounteneering but it works well in slightly more technical places without having to bring my ice climbing axes.
