Long Description

An indispensable tool for thrill-seeking mountaineers, this ice axe is just as fit for saving a life as it is for taking one. Its lightweight shaft of white mountain pine separates a steel pick and adze at one end from a steel spike at the base. Not only can it be jabbed into the side of a mountain or used to cut footholds into frozen terrain, it's also just the right length to serve as a walking stick - and, should an adventurer stumble across one of the Ramtops' more unsavory residents, mountains aren't all that this axe is fit to conquer when held in the right hands.


Appraises As

The ice axe is about a foot and a half long and about an inch wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type axe.

Notes

It is a climbing aid that provides a bonus to each of the climbing sub-skills when held.

Responds to staff and can be used as a walking stick (with all that entails).

Acquisition

  • Rare - hubland bears in the hub

SPOILER: The ice axe is found on a unique mountain climber that (very rarely) appears after killing a Hubland Bear
