An ice axe or climbing axe is a light weight tool used to assist in climbing. The head is smaller and more pointed, backed by either a hammer head or an awl. The haft usually has attachment points for rope and other climbing gear. It is used to make steps or hand holds in rock and, more frequently, ice.
