Grivel Candela Ice Screw Tool Reviews:

Positive Reviews:


If you climb ice, this tool is awesome. I have used some of the others, and this one combines all essential functions into one lightweight handy tool. First, use it to clean the ice from your screws: no more frozen lips or damaged screws. works quick and easy every time. Then use it to cut webbbing or cord for a V thread anchor and the hook to pull it through. I keep mine inside a 22cm screw at the back of my harness for the anchor. It stays securely inside the screw, and doesn't take up more room on your harness.

Candela Ice Screw Tool

There are a lot of v-threaders on the market and some folks even make their own – but none of them compare to the Candela. It’s the perfect size and shape to fit securely inside a 22cm ice screw so it doesn’t get lost during your climb. It is extremely useful for unplugging frozen ice screws while cleaning a route because its diameter puts force throughout the entire inside of the screw. Forgot your knife in your pack? No problem – cut webbing for v-threads with the built-in blade. It doesn’t make the cleanest cut, but it gets you down safely.

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.

Negative Reviews:

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.
