Grivel Tech Machine

The Grivel Tech Machine is a technical, leashless axe for alpine, hard Scottish mixed or steep ice climbing.

Both strong, with a T rated shaft and blade, and pretty lightweight at 635g, the Grivel Tech Machine features a new handle that is very comfortable to use over long periods, is well insulated and includes a spike on the base which is useful for topping out and for use on approach and can be used as an attachment point for a spring leash to keep them secure.

The balance of The Tech Machine is quite neutral, rather than being head heavy, which makes it a great all-round technical tool but this can be adapted with the addition of the optional hammer, making the balance a bit more top heavy meaning more efficient placements on longer routes and in ice that's hard to penetrate.

It comes with the Grivel's Ice Vario Blade which is tapered (3mm at the point) for excellent penetration, even in brittle ice, yet is strong enough to see you through any tough mixed sections or even a dry tooling session or two.
