Ski mountaineering races usually require you to go extremely light, even when it comes to protective gear. But, for glacier regions like Patrouille des Glaciers, an ice axe would be an integral part of your gear. This is where Climbing Technology Agile Ice Axe comes in. Not only is it extremely lightweight, but its also incredibly robust! Its most prominent feature is definitely its low weight. It is not suitable for alpine use, though, because its aluminium head is much too light, so it lacks the bite you would need! For normal ski tours that dont require you to go as light, the Climbing Technology Agile Ice Axe can be used as a snow anchor.
