SMC - Capra Ice Axe

The SMC Capra is a result of more than 2 years of extensive design and field testing around the globe. Prototypes were used by experienced guides and other climbers in successful summits of such notable mountains as Mt. Everest, Mt. Vinson, Mt. McKinley, Mt. Shasta, and Mt. Adams. One of the lightest axes in this category, Capra features a head that fits naturally into the user’s hand, helping to minimize the discomfort often associated with using a mountaineering axe for extended periods on time. While the overall weight of this axe is remarkably light, the axe features a full sized chromoly steel head and spike, not ones that were chopped off to save weight. The unique handle is designed to be easier to index in hand for surer placement in self-arrest. Great balance and swing weight are hallmarks of this new axe.

SMC named this axe the Capra, in recognition of the sure-footed mountain goats that inhabit the nearby Cascade Mountain range. Quite often seen at elevations of nearly 10,000 feet, these hardy animals spend most of their lives above the timberline and are well known for being extremely nimble on steep mountain faces of 60° or more.
