The 470 g (16.5 oz) Cosmi’tec is new to the Winter OR show. It’s a classic mountaineering and glacier travel axe. But with its slightly curved shaft and tapered and recurved pick it will do a credible job on steep ice. The shaft bend is shallow enough to allow for deep plunges and a solid anchor in soft snow. A great multipurpose axe.
New to the Summer OR show was the 450 g (16.0 oz) Snowscopic, a combination axe and trekking pole. It can be used on steep approaches. And sometimes a trekking pole works better on a glacier and steep snow than an axe.
