An ideal choice for climbers who prefer the reduced weight and easy handling of an extremely technical tool that retains all the characteristics of a Grivel ice axe. Only 565 grams. Hot forged head in chromolly steel: no compromise over quality. Available with shovel or hammer. The shaft has a double angulation increasing the head?s opening and helping the wrist when in traction. Very efficient hand support with a little point in Tungsten Carbide for safety.
