The X-Alp is built with the same lightweight design as the X-All Mountain, but features a less radical curve in the shaft to make it more versatile on lower-angled terrain. The X-Alp comes with a durable single-density handgrip that will hold up to whacking crampons in sticky snow. The smaller pinky ledge and long steel spike make plunging easier and the contoured adze offers a comfortable grip when using the tool as a cane. Interchangeable grips, picks, and heads. Single-density handgrip for optimal plunging and durability.
