Over the years Petzl Ice axes have evolved a great deal. As technology has advanced, so have ice axes: they have become more specialized, lighter, more durable and with better performance characteristics. As a result, climbers are able to explore new techniques and push mountaineering and ice climbing in new, groundbreaking directions.
Petzl has always been at the forefront of these technical innovations. It was the first company to design a tool specifically for leashless ice and mixed climbing. The NOMIC builds on these innovations: the comfortable ergonomic handle, multiple grip configuration and pick weights make it the perfect tool for both sketchy dry-tooling and climbing steep ice columns.
