Grivel - X-Monster - Hammer
Following in the footsteps of Grivel's old Monster tool, the less extreme X-Monster has arrived. The shaft is slightly straighter and the grip is better for vertical walls - its multi-grip design lets the climber’s imagination run wild. A thinner pick for fragile ice. A shorter pick as the continuity between pick and shaft can anchor in deep as there’s nothing to stop the blade fitting in between two columns or in narrow cracks. The flexible shaft that so many climbers have recently discovered makes anchoring into cracks, including non vertical ones, easier and safer. The rear is a hammer shaped like a climbing nut, ideal for anchoring and torqueing in larger cracks on mixed terrain. A hole in the shaft can be used to attach a leash. Tiny anti slip claw at the end of the shaft. Modern graphics and accessible prices for those with limited funds typical of today’s younger generation.
