The Black Diamond Raven Ultra Ice Axe is a super-light, streamlined ice tool designed for ski-touring and moderate snow and ice alpine climbs.
Taking the design of the popular Raven, the Ultra Ice Axe has basically stripped off every gram of weight to give a super lightweight tool that weighs in at just 330g. The shaft is constructed from a single piece of aluminium tubing plugged and reinforced at the bottom end to improve performance when plunging in softer snow. The head is a one piece stainless steel casing which allows for a low profile connection to the shaft, letting your fingers sit more comfortably when holding the head than many other axes. This makes a big difference to the feel of the axe in your hand, especially when spending hour after hour plunging in softer snow. The investment casing and heat treatment applied to the head of this axe ensure that for a tool this light the Raven Ultra is surprisingly durable.
The Raven Ultra is in many ways a fusion of the best features of the amazingly light but poorly performing aluminium ski touring axes, which are great unless you actually want to use them, and the more substantial and durable walking axes. It is perfect for glacier travel, ski-touring, light alpinism or as a back-up axe for high altitude via ferrata and early season alpine rock climbing.
