Less extreme, but still mean.

The latest incarnation of the Grivel X-Monster Ice Tool sports a more ice-specific design than its mix-minded predecessors. In contrast to the original Monster, the X-Monster is designed primarily for ice climbing. Multiple handle positions allow easy swinging, matching, and hooking on ice. The re-worked shaft is slightly straighter, making it better suited for vertical walls. A hole in the shaft gives alpinists the option of climbing with a leash, and the more flexible shaft makes anchoring into cracks both easier and safer.

  • Chromolly steel pick
  • Slightly straighter, flexible shaft
  • Leash hole in shaft
  • Anti-slip claw at the end of shaft
  • Hammer or shovel rear available

Ugly but functional!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Yes, they're not the prettiest tool in the shed, but they work wonders on ice. I've used mine for a few seasons on vertical ice and I'm very satisfied. They're a tad on the heavy side but they swing well and stick nicely with a bit of wrist-action. Great for a climber on a budget.
