Whether you’re bagging a Munro or two or having a walk up a snow capped Kinder Scout, this section of the terrain guide covers all activities that involve walking in snowy mountains to help you choose the best crampons and axe to maximise your performance.
Modern mixed & DT is becoming more and more popular in Europe and in the UK, therefore Grivel have developed a range of axes that will not only help you get up your current dry tooling training project but will give you the bite and confidence you need on delicate ice daggers.
The equipment in this section needs to be versatile- ice falls and Scottish winter climbs can vary massively from long 400m WI3 ice falls in Europe to short and burley thrutch-fests in Scotland, the Lakes or north Wales. Within the Grivel offering there are tools that cover the whole spectrum of technical winter climbing and some that are so specific you could have a whole quiver.
Involves a huge variety of different, conditions, angles and styles of climbing and because of this the choice of tools available in the Grivel collection is massive. You might need a very light axe for security on approaches to summer rock routes or you could need a pair of work horse tools for that dream north face route in winter whatever your requirements you will find the right tool for the job in this section.
