The only limit of the Alp Monster Ice Tool is your imagination.

Building on the immense popularity of the Monster ice tools, Grivel took its design to the mountains with the Alp Monster Ice Tool. Using the same combination of a Cro-Moly steel shaft and permanently attached hot-forged pick as the other Monster tools, this Grivel creation is incredibly strong, weighs only 19.4 ounces, and is available in both 38cm and 44cm lengths. Use it with a leash or leashless to meet your needs, whether you're using it as a third tool, a beginning ice climber tool, or as a hammer to accompany your piolet up a Cascade volcano. There are no rules for the Alp Monster, so make up your own.

  • Solid steel construction for unmatched durability
  • Ideal as a third tool on ice or as a second tool on mountaineering routes
  • Can be used with or without a leash

Did not come with snake grip

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Bought the Alp Monster to use as a third tool, or as a thin light "just in case" tool when when encountering surprise ice bulges on BC ski trips. The plastic handle at the lower hand position is comfortable for normal swinging. But the thin metal shaft is not comfortable for gripping at the upper hand position, and the instability of the grip means a tendancy for the tool to flop/twist sideways. I believe Grivel realized this, and that is why they include the Snake Grip with the Alp Monster tool... At least they are supposed to. Even the spec sheet that comes with the product explicitly states, "With the Alp Monster comes the Snake, which can be cut and placed on the shaft to make the handle more comfortable." However, Backcountry never included the Snake grips with my tool. Always have loved backcountry service, but this time they lose two stars for not including the grips that are supposed to come with the product, and for failing to mention that. Sorry guys, but I was expecting those grips, and they would make a big difference in the functionality of this tool.

Uncomfortable grip

I bought one intended to use as a third tool. The grip was uncomfortable. It is heavy. I sold mine without using even once. The older version, Black 3 works much better. So I keep on using the Black 3.
