Lightweight and functional

A lightweight axe that is still big enough and heavy enough to be useful. Becoming my go to axe for mountaineering.

JP Edgington
Light weight, well balanced and robust.

Great piece of kit - light, robust, well made and T rated. What’s not to love…

Hi JP - just a quick note, the Spire Tech is not T rated. For a T rated versatile axe, check out the Vertex. Thanks!

NIce and light

I specifically bought this as a lightweight axe for the Alps for doing straightforward glacier and ridge work. In the Alps, I think that every ounce matters. It fits the bill perfectly. I moslty use the shaft, but the pick works fine too. Have used on routes up to AD. I like it.

Great lightweigt all rounder

Perfect for alpine climbing or mountaineering .
