Compact: Measuring 50 cm, the Glacier literide is as compact as it is light, and therefore easily transportable on a pack
The upper part of the pick offers excellent grip (comfortable supporting surface)
The pick and the shaft are lighter, yet extremely robust
The Glacier Literide from Petzl provides excellent security and holding power in a lightweight, pack-friendly package. Because of its small stature and lightweight aluminum shaft, this axe is ideal for ski- and snowboard-mountaineering, especially given that it can easily be strapped to a pack for the descent. The toothed steel pick and steel adze provide a stable anchor and efficiently cut steps into the snow, respectively. The stainless steel bottom spike plunges easily into even the hardest snow, and the top and bottom both feature carabiner-clip holes for easy anchoring.
