Nimsdai Purja on the North Machine Carbon Special:
“My team and I are always leading from the front. For this, you need an ice axe that is built for technical and demanding climbs. With the Vario System, we can create the ice axe we need to fix lines, open routes and ice climb. It is lightweight, tough, and shaped to provide precision and protection for your hands. So, whether we are using the hammer variant to fix lines and anchor them into the mountain or using the multi-faceted stealth blade for digging out ice, we know it won’t let us down.”
