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-svy 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.
A tribute to tradition using today's most advanced technologies, the Grivel Monte Bianco Ice Axe is built to be both beautiful and functional for the requirements of classical alpinism.
The Monte Bianco Axe from Grivel has vintage styling with modern technology, a carbon-fiber and wood shaft is topped by a hot-forged ChroMoly steel head for classical alpinism performance.
