Grivel designed the North Machine Ice Tool for all those odd ice and mixed routes on nearly every north-facing wall, but that doesn't mean it won't 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-handle 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.
