Petzl Nomic Ice Tools

| Comments

After boots and crampons ice tools are the third essential piece of gear when climbing ice. As with the other equipment, I did plenty of research online, in magazines and books before I decided to get the Petzl Nomic ice tools, and once I used them I understood why they’re so highly regarded.

Great Ice!

Grivel G20 Crampons

| Comments

If you climb up an ice fall a pair of crampons are necessary - unless you’re Superman and just fly up (where’s the fun in that?). As I set out to climb ice, a pair of yellow Grivel G20 crampons arrived at La Maison Morkel - they are the lightest crampons available, thus it was an easy choice! A Living Review.
