Black Diamond Whippet II

The next generation of the legendary whippet self-arrest pole is designed to offer the same proven security and self arrest capability with an increased level of safety and convenience. The Whippet II is designed to travel easily from the tram-line to the fall-line. The hot forged steel blade folds seamlessly into the handle for convenience and it can be extended to increase your level of safety in dangerous situations. With the folding tool and 3-section shaft, the Whippet II is designed for the long distance ski mountaineering excursions.


Designed for the mixed environment ski mountaineer, the large eyelet can accommodate a carabiner, rope or adjustable webbing for more traditional off piste resort use. The folding tool and collapsible shaft allows the pole to be used in a resort environment and accommodate the times when you travel into the backcountry.
