Radically curved to maximise clearance, it is the perfect partner for the most outrageous mixed, ice, and dry tooling routes around. The Switch is instantly recognisable as a top end ice axe. An aggressively curved shaft gives optimal clearance for steep terrain. Both the shaft and pick are T rated, which along with the full strength handle and double riveted construction, means the Switch can stand up to the harshest treatment. The handle is CNC'd from a solid block of aluminium to maximise ergonomics and make the Switch highly stable when hooking through thin terrain. Full strength upper and lower rests allow you to make use of the full range of modern mixed climbing techniques.
