So what version of the Ueli Steck lwt axe will we see at OR this winter?
I'm betting on the Sum-Tec/Nomic combo versions in the picture just below that he has been using for a while now. But you never know....he has so many as the 2nd picture shows.
Lots of shots on video here of what I'd guess we'll see at OR.
More here from a previous comment.. in 2013. Be fun to see what Petzl decided they could produce.
YEA! They did it! Took awhile but Petzl showed both a lwt skimo axe and a new lwt "Nomic" as the revamped "Sum'tec" @ OR in SCL 2017. Makes sense because the new Sum'tec was so easy to make up with parts they already had on hand at Petzl.

Maybe something like this, at 3.28min
Nice catch on the video Matej :) Obviously something new has been out and around for a while now.
Didn't Uli say in one videos that Petzl made it specifically for him and wouldn't make it for the public since it wouldn't pass certs?
It'd be super rad if they figured a way around that!
Right on. The that was the original comment on his super light Nomic type tool shown. We'll see what they have decided to sell next month.
if you go through some of colin haileys stuff too, he's been recently using uelis tool
Interesting. The Sumtec shaft is in fact T-rated so that isn't an issue for an Alpine Nomic. And the fixed blade tools look like Terrors but made from Ride and Glacier Literide parts…

Thanks NorCal. Looks like we get the lwt Nomic via a redesigned SumTec and a new lwt skimo axe. Shoot score!
