Grivel's Jorasses 2. 0 Ice Axe is a classic pick revamped with subtle updates that mountaineers have learned over the years. For example, Grivel modified the head with a reverse curve to penetrate a variety of ice types that you're bound to come across on a single adventure, and the shaft is a ridiculously light alloy that employs a natural, effortless swing. Grivel made the head out of chromolly steel to eliminate the possibility of rusting. The Easy Slider leash adjusts up and down the shaft to give you a good grip on different-angled terrain.
