Ice Axe Types

Technical: For steep or overhanging ice and mixed technical routes. Ideal for sport ice climbing and hard routes. Two axes required. Ultra-specialist versions can include dry-tooling and blade-only functionality for competition and indoor climbing where hammers and adzes are unnecessary.

Semi Technical: For routes where some ice or snow climbing will be necessary, ideal for most alpine and scottish winter ascents. Essential on routes which need two axes to ascend..

Walking Axes: For use in snow, ice and glacier walking. Essential for winter hill use for fall arrest, stability and cutting steps. Where a choice of length is offered, chose one that when held in the hand with arm by your side leaves the point of the axe handle roughly level with the top of your walking boot. This avoids it dragging while walking but is long enough to use as a walking stick on uneven snowy ground. Some people prefer a slightly longer one but never chose one that hits the ground when your arm is dropped by your side.

Ski axes - very similar to walking axes but usually short and minimalist lightweight designs for ease of carrying. Not ideal for cutting steps but excellent for fall arrest and on steeper sections of ascent.

3rd Tools: Ideal as a backup, for lightweight travel, children and smaller hands. Hammer is useful to place pitons and tent pegs in frozen ground.

B rated axes and blades and handles are suitable for fall arrest, climbing and belaying, ie almost everything most people need.

T rated blades or handles are suitable for everything a B rated one can do plus they can be used for torquing - an advanced technique using twisting action to create grip in cracks that otherwise wouldnt be suitable. Very high forces are generated and lessor blades will twist or snap. Even T rated blade can on occassion fail when used this way.
