Perhaps the ultimate blend of ice axe performance characteristics. The bent shaft Alien combines all the advantages of the straight
Alien's lightness and precision with the knuckle screenage and improved swing of the Predator. Exquisitely balanced, this
uncompromising tool excels itself on both ice and mixed terrain. Available as an axe or hammer in 50 cm length. Color: violet. Head
material: "new" 2014T6 aluminum. Shaft material: 7075T6 aluminum.
Alien Headset "The Mixed Advantage" features: ultra compact for accessing placements in confined cracks or chimneys; ultra light
for superior placement control; integrated "wedge" for unrivalled hooking into crack extrusions; severely hooked and toothed
underside of headset; shaped for increased torquing and wedging options.
Modular Components: Other picks, leashes, and hammer/adzes are available. Both the straight and bent shaft Aliens come as
standard with DMM's icefall pick, standard leash and either the technical hammer or new mixed adze. Bent Aliens are also
compatible with DMM's new "clipper leash system"....recommended by DMM.
