Ortovox's Pocket Spike is simply ingenious! Although usually tucked away in your backpack or pants pocket, the Pocket Spike can quickly be retrieved in tense situations; for instance, when you’ve only got a few feet to the summit or if you need to cross a steep slope. In two steps, you can mount it on to the Pro Alu III shovel handle for added protection (shovel sold separately). The Pocket Spike has two parts: the tough axe blade made from AL 7075 T6 and the spike, which is attached in place of the shovel blade. The two parts snap together to form a single piece with no sharp edges that weighs just 95 grams. This tool is perfect for tours where you are happy about some additional support when you’ve only got a few feet left to the summit.
