Grivel designed the North Machine Ice Tool for all the ones atypical ice and mixed routes on just about each and every north-facing wall, but that does not mean it may not also work on other directions. Aerospace carbon gives this tool the superlight convenience that alpinists want and the reliable power that strong ice climbers need. Grivel gave the shaft an ergonomic, easy-to-maintain feel and fine-tuned the Ice Plus blade for mixed or ice terrain. The blade comes with either a hammer or shovel for extra convenience.
