Grivel’s Air Tech ice axe has been a regular piece of equipment among alpinists and ski mountaineers for some years. The Air Tech G-Bone Axe–of the now-classic Air Tech–comes with an up to date grip for added security on snow and ice. The new-forged head (complete with positive clearance) ensures both an effective purchase and protected anchoring on snow and ice. Meanwhile, the T-rated shaft means this axe may not shy away from near-vertical cruxes and down-climbs. A gentle curve just below the pinnacle offers additional clearance in any terrain, even as the straight shaft plunges deeply into snow throughout the descent.
