Grivel Matrix Light Axes at planetFear, 31 kb The featherweight ice axe for alpinists: 515 grams! An ideal choice for climbers who prefer the reduced weight and easy handling of a simple tool that retains all the characteristics of a Grivel ice axe.

Hot forged head in Chromolly Steel: no compromise over quality.

Available with adze or hammer.

The angle in the shaft is high up as this maximises the distance between shaft and anchorage points. The straight lower section of the shaft makes penetration easier even in hard snow.
