Our modern take on Chouinard's original curved-pick mountain axe, the Black Diamond Raven Ice Axe is a classic mountaineer's piolet that has been used on classic climbs the world over for decades. Now redesigned, the Raven is lighter, and sports an updated investment-cast, stainless steel head ergonomically improved for increased comfort while walking. The updated pick and adze geometry allow for more secure placements and efficient chopping, and the revamped spike adds better bite on those icy placements with improved plunge-ability. The durable aircraft-grade aluminum shaft is also improved with a trapezoidal cross-section for a more comfortable, better grip.
  • Durable, trapezoidal cross-section, aircraft-grade aluminum shaft

Essential Climbing and Glissading Tool

I purchased the 80 cm model. This ice axe proved to be an essential tool for summiting Mt Adams in Washington state. I completed the summit with my military unit on 6/12/21. The longer handle allowed for an easier climb to the top and was extremely helpful with maintaining balance and braking while glissading back down the mountain.
