Ein klassischer Hochtourenpickel vom Traditionshersteller: der G1 von Grivel. Der Pickel eigent sich vor allem als "Gehstock" für einfach bis mittlere Hochtouren und Gletscherwanderungen mit einem bequemen Kopf und bissiger Haue für schnelle Self-Arrests.

Packwild Grivel G1 Review

Der G1 von Grivel besteht aus einem Kopf auf geschmiedetem Stahl und einem Aluminiumschaft. Er erfüllt die B-Norm und kommt mit einer Handschlaufe inklusive praktischem Schutz für die Spitze.

Wer lieber einen gummierten Griff für besseren Halt hat, sollte sich den G1 Plus anschauen.

Der G1 eignet sich für alle, die einen langlebigen, stabilen Begleiter für Gletschertouren suchen. Es geht allerdings noch leichter mit dem G1 Zero, dem Petzl Glacier oder dem Blue Ice Blackbird.

Für etwas mehr Performance gibts den nahezu baugleichen Grivel Nepal SA oder Nepal SA Plus mit leicht gebogenem Schaft: Unsere Empfehlung für diese Pickel-Klasse von Grivel.

Vor- und Nachteile:

  • Handschlaufe mit Spitzenschutz
  • Stabiler ergonomischer Kopf
  • Aggressive Haue
  • gibt leichtere

Great Value Ice Ace
Bought this to climb Mt. Adams. It worked out great. We weren’t able to glissade because of ice but when we did try I was able to abort the ice chute and self arrest successfully.

Great axe
Used this in the lake district, very light and ergonomic. Clearly made of decent materials and wouldn't break any time soon.I think the slight bend in the shaft may not suit some people when walking, but when it comes to striking out foot holds or self arrest it seems more natural.

It's really good (but I am pretty tall (6' 3") so it's ...
Starting with a grain of salt. I don't often give 5 stars so use that as a baseline.Recently got this because my old broom handle ice-ax gave up just before a trek up Mt.Adams. Having been years sence I got a new AX I did a lot of research. Most everyone said "get a Grivel" they are sexy. REI was out and they only carry the black (Red looked sexier) so AMAZON it is.It's really good (but I am pretty tall (6' 3") so it's handle could have been a little longer (why I loved my old AX) to use as a good walking stick. The weight is AWESOME and it was really comfortable in my hand. I have larger hands and had no issue and my climbing buddy with more average sized hands preferred mine to his when trying it out for fit. The curved handle (something new to me) is great for making a self-arrest easier for the leverage benefits.The draw-back (and perhaps because of my old ax as a basis of comparison) I am use to the strait handle being a little easier to jam into the snow for an anchor. I was able to do it no problem, but it took more UMPH to set with the curved handel. After a few tries I figured out that if I curve it into the snow as I plant it; it's pretty clean. Likely it holds better too... just saying. this may be more tricky if the snow is really heavy or more packed down.I loved it and can't wait to get out there again.

Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo!
Ottima per chi comincia a muovere i primi passi sulle montagne innevate. Ottima per alpinismo classico su pendii non troppo ripidi. Bisogna saperla usare ed avere delle competenze tecniche di alpinismo, ma questo è sottinteso!

Good axe
Perfect choice for a number of uses, it works well on frozen snow and in late morning softer snow. The rubber cap may be used when descending on rocks and provides an aid to discharge weight. I like it a lot, I have also used in really steep climbings and it worked smoothly.
– Scubarob
very good
love this ice ax, it is long, sturdy and well designed. Rubber cap is a nice touch. Leash is strong enough and has the adjustment.
