Grivel Air Tech Hammer Ice Axe with Leash -
The Grivel Air Tech Evo Hammer makes an ideal companion to your ice axe on mountaineering routes that aren't quite steep enough to require two technical ice tools. Although it weighs only 18 ounces, the Air Tech Evo Hammer combines a T-rated shaft and ultra-strong hot-forged pick. The slight bend in the top of the shaft provides extra clearance for bulges and makes it easier to self-arrest.

Weather and Wind:

  • Movable pommel lets you climb steep snow and even ice without compromising plunging ability
  • New shaft features gentle curve just below head giving greater clearance—makes anchoring easier on any sort of terrain, while lower straight part of the shaft will penetrate into snow with little effort


  • Slightly bent upper shaft clears bulges in technical terrain


  • Ideal for placing pickets and ascending steep terrain
  • Grivel makes climbing products in Italy with a completely solar-powered factory
  • Head with hammer is forged from a single piece of steel—an established alpine classic
  • Advanced ice axe technology; CE Certified T UIAA
  • Stretch leash included
Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS)

Grivel Air Tech Hammer Ice Axe with Leash Reviews:


I have the version with the adz instead of the hammer. It's very light and with the T rated shaft I'm not afraid of bending it or causing damage. Works great and is easy to throw on a backpack whenever I'm heading up into the snow and ice. The leash has a nice rubber cover for the point. The point on the pick is pretty darn sharp. Pick up one of the Black Diamond Ice axe covers for the pick and/or adz to protect you and your gear.

This is a great 2nd axe for steep snow/glacier ascents. I don't believe the pick's angle is agressive enough for vertical ice. The description for the adze version of this axe says suitable for ice climbing, but I would reccomend dedicated tools for ice.
I have the earlier version with the standard leash.

This hammer and its matching axe make a perfect pair for almost any alpine climb short of hard technical ice and mixed. Liberty Ridge...N. Ridge of Baker? Perfect!
Pickets or pitons this hammer will do it all and it is decent as a single tool for self arrest.
