GrivelMonte Bianco Ice Axe

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Grivel's Monte Bianco Ice Axe is a traditional axe similar to the classic axes that original alpinists like Lionel Terray used to make first ascents on the world's biggest mountains. Grivel forged its head out of a single piece of chromolly steel for long-lasting durability, and modern serrations ensure this axe holds its grip like any axe a tech-saavy mountaineer would use. The only contemporary upgrade this axe features is the Carbonwood shaft, which combines the ultralight convenience of carbon with the sturdiness of wood.
