The Nepal Steel is a non-technical ice axe ideal for trekking, classic snow climbs, rental programs, and schools. The carbon-steel head features a classically inclined pick with teeth along half its length. The body and pick are hot, drop forged in one piece, then the stamped adze is welded to it. The Ergal shaft surpasses UIAA norms for strength and durability; it is coated with black, epoxy-based paint.

Monte rosa 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Go-Devil, 2009-07-14

In europe this axe has a monte rosa variant, its the same axe, same pick/shovel/handle except it comes with a long leash and has "monte rosa" printed on the side (possible a local variant)

In short, this axe does what its supposed to, its not too big, not too heavy, light enough to not be a burden but heavy enough to do some serious chopping, a nice addon is the rubber cap on the end of the leash that goes over the pick when not in use or when traversing rocks....
