Clip it to your harness any time you're on the ice.

With a fold-out hook to pull cord through a V-Thread (Abalakov) anchor, the Grivel Candela is an important piece of gear for getting off ice climbs. It even has a retractable blade to cut sling material when your anchor is complete. It is also made of soft plastic so you can use it to clean ice out of a screw without scratching the inside.

Here's what others have to say...


Nifty but unnecessary

    The Candela seems like a good idea but unfortunately lacks enough ingenuity to be valuable enough or better than a piece of coat hanger. The integrated knife is nice but not as useful as an actual knife on a longer route. Also, the folding hook can be difficult to use w/ gloves on.

      I've used this gadget for 2 seasons and love it. I keep it inside my bail-kit's 22cm abalakov screw nice and protected for when i need it. It functions to clear stubborn ice from a screw your second forgot to clear. It functions as a v-thread tool to snag the cord and clear the ice holes; the hook also stays hidden so it doesn't stab you. It also has a readily accessible knife for cutting cord or webbing. The Candella is quite a versatile all-in-one tool.


      Weak tool

        I wasn't too impressed with the durability of this tool. After a few outings this tool sure enough folded up in half and was useless. If you keep it protected in a pack all the time it will last maybe but don't plan on carrying this on your harness.

        If you keep this tool inside of a 22cm screw it will be well protected.
