Raptor

The gentle curve in the shaft gives clearance when swinging without compromising the Raptor’s ability to self arrest.

A full size hammer and adze make light work of cutting steps and ledges and bashing in pegs for security. The spike on the base of the handle rounds out the Raptors mountaineering capability by giving security on snow and ice slopes.

For those wishing to venture into steep terrain the Raptor can be fitted with a Fly pick that improves climbing performance. A leash prevents you accidentally dropping the axe, and allows resting opportunities if climbing steeper ground.

Picks on the Fly and Raptor are interchangeable, allowing you to customise the axes to improve performance on either steeper or more traditional terrain. Fly picks are more aggressive for climbing steep ice and mixed, while the Raptor's Alpine Pick gives better self arrest performance.

A refined design makes this a superb all-rounder, with plenty of technical juice in the tank for classic mountaineering, yet without being overkill for hillwalking on less steep terrain. UKC
