Next to your climbing partner, your axe is your most trusted friend on a big mountain. The Grivel Air Tech Evolution axe will be there for you when you need it, and at only 16.1oz it won’t be a burden. Unlike, for example, certain climbing partners we have all known.
This axe had no problems standing up to a good two-week pounding on Denali after a season of continous use. It plunges well, has a no-slip grip and the slight bend allows it to reach over bulges like a tool.
Pair it with Grivel’s Dragonne Leash for protectus maximus.
