GrivelThor Hammer

Your personal Mjölnir.

Forged in the heart of Grivel's cave-like workshop, the Thor Hammer pounds pitons and sets bolts on climbs like its ancient ancestor Mjölnir. Translated into English, Mjölnir stands for "grindstone" or "crusher," which is applicable for the Thor Hammer in that it grinds bolts into snow and crushes pitons into place. Its hot-forged chromolly steel construction is so solid that you'll probably pass this down to your youngster, he'll do the same to his boy, and so on and so on, until it becomes a family legend. Grivel included an elastic leash with a locking carabiner that is not recommended for climbing anchors or belays, but certainly saves your belay partner from falling hammers.

The Mighty Thor

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Cast out, across that blank sea of granite, high stepping from edge to chicken head, until you look down and realize your 15 feet above your last piece, with miles to go before that seam opens up. Thankfully you are packing the Thor hammer, a hand drill, and a couple of 5 piece power bolts.

Light enough to not feel like a burden, but packs a mighty head weight punch. Ergonomically shaped, great for bashing pins as well as hand drilling on lead.

I have this version as well as a really old one of these pups, and the old one is still in kicking condition - will last indefinitely.

The Ferrari of wall hammers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using this hammer for hand drilling anchor bolts, as well as cleaning choosy routes. It's light weight but packs a punch, and has yet to show any signs of wear.
It makes sandstone feel like butter... a giant wall of butter that you're throwing fat bolts into.

what is the length

Hey, Matt - What length do you need? Leash, Hammer, etc.
