With its super-strong T-rated construction on the head and shaft, the Alpina is the right choice for intensive use on rugged alpine terrain. The unique forged chromoly steel head delivers superior strength and durability. A refi ned pick provides excellent performance both when swinging into ice and during a self arrest. The curve and arc of the adze have been optimized for maximum cutting performance, a feature greatly appreciated when chopping a platform.
