“Wow” is the typical reaction I get when showing the Charlet Moser Atzar Ice Tool. The overall design and look of this tool just screams “alpine style.” The Atzar’s small diameter grip, and well thought out head configuration give it great balance and performance for technical climbing, ski mountaineering, and general high-angle mountain use. These tools should be your first choice when weight is your primary concern. The Freelock leash is the perfect companion when alternating your grip from shaft to head as well. The Atzar has been a perfect choice this spring in the Tetons when ski mountaineering conditions were at their best.
