Grivel X Monster Ice Tool. All the accepted rules about climbing equipment were upset during the 2004-2005 season by Monster.

A great beginner tool into the world of leashless climbing. Been climbing on it one season now and have loved it. Mixed/ice it goes anywhere. The picks are hard and thin and seem to stick in most things. The reason I give it a 4 vs a 5 is because of the weight. This sucker is heavy. The cost though is very can buy 2 tools for the price of one of the others! I like these tools a lot!
