The C.A.M.P. X-All Mountain Ice Axe is a simple ice axe that does everything well. It is a perfectly-balanced, fine-tuned, high-quality ice climbing machine. Due to its simplicity, it climbs all angles of ice with much more fluidity and consistency than other modern ice tools. The profiled pick and perfect head weight make it one of the best tools for thin ice where it penetrates aggressively with minimal impact on the ice. C.A.M.P has increased the size of the main pommel on the handles to provide an extra four milimeters in width and length for use with thicker gloves. For climbers who have experienced the frustrations of pick bounce, ice bashing and shoulder fatigue common with the more aggressive mixed tools or more classic style tools, try swinging the new X-All Mountains for welcome relief. Once you do, there will be no going back.
