Cassin X-All Mountain - NEW!
Quantity in Basket:
Updated for 2012-13 with a new and lighter anodized exterior.
Mountaineer's Take: We are very excited about the
new All Mountain tool from Cassin--it replaces the staff
favorite Awax, introducing more curve in the shaft, a
clippable spike, and most importantly a second grip for
leashless climbing, while preserving the amazing pick
that made the Awax such a great tool. The price is hard to
Cassin says: The All Mountain Tool is a combination of the best
elements from the Cassin X-Dry, X-Ice and X-Alp tools
(aggressive shaft curve, hammer head, double-pommel
grip, large spike) with an upgrade to the All Mountain
Pick that optimizes the tool for Awax-like performance.
To Awax lovers, we can say sincerely that the new X-All
Mountain Tool is the new Awax. For climbers who have
experienced the frustrations of pick bounce, ice bashing
and shoulder fatigue common with the more aggressive
mixed tools, we encourage you to swing the new All
Optimized pick angle and tooth configuration climbs all angles of ice and rock
Interchangeable head components make switching between an adze and hammer or replacing picks simple and affordable
Interchangeable grips come in three varieties for leashless, leashed and alpine or snow climbing. They all bolt onto the shaft with one screw and because of their dual density molded construction, they dampen vibrations and insulate remarkably well
The spike is large enough to grip on low angle glacier ice and has a hole large enough to clip a carabiner for use with lanyards
The All Mountain Tool is ultimately a combination of the best elements from the Cassin X-Dry, X-Ice and X-Alp tools (aggressive shaft curve, hammer head, double-pommel grip, large spike) with an upgrade to the All Mountain Pick that optimizes the tool for Awax-like performance
