A modern take on Yvon Chouinard's original curved-pick mountain axe, the Black Diamond Raven ice axe is a classic mountaineer's piolet that has been used on classic climbs the world over for decades.


  • Redesigned, the Raven is lighter than before and sports an updated investment-cast, stainless-steel head ergonomically improved for increased comfort while walking
  • Updated pick and adze geometry allow for more secure placements and efficient chopping
  • Revamped spike adds better bite on those icy placements with improved plunge-ability
  • Durable aircraft-grade aluminum shaft is also improved with a trapezoidal cross-section for a more comfortable, better grip
  • Investment-cast, 1-piece stainless-steel head has a large hole for a carabiner
  • Pick's curve and teeth are engineered to allow secure self-arresting
  • CEN-B certified
