Black Diamond’s Swift Ice Axe takes the classic piolet to the next level to help you achieve your mountaineering objectives. As the only T-rated mountaineering axe in Black Diamond’s line, the Swift combines insane strength with remarkable lightness to help you make short work of front pointing up hard snow or traversing technical ridges into ski lines. What really sets the Swift apart, though, is its FlickLock adjustable pommel, which slides up and down the shaft to provide more support in committing terrain where your axe might be the only thing between you and a 5,000-foot ride into a bergschrund.
