Cirque Axe 50cm
Cirque Axe 50cm


The Cirque is fully T rated for robust performance in the harsh winter environment. The gently curved pick and shaft combine to give excellent self arrest performance, while a spike on the handle provides grip and stability on snow and ice slopes. A full size adze makes step cutting and ledge chopping easy, while the shaft allows efficient plunging of the axe into snow when making progress. The Cirque comes equipped with our Standard leash for security should you accidentally drop the axe.
