Grivel equipment

Grivel Order

Last weekend a delivery from Grivel arrived. We have decided that this season we will upgrade some of our winter equipment. This meant to splash out on some good money on shiny Grivel crampons, ice axes, crampon extenders and crampon bags. What we got are:

  • 1 Grivel AirTech Evo Ice axe (53cm)
  • 1 Grivel G1 Ice axe (53cm)
  • 3 Grivel G12 NewMatic Crampons (C2)
  • 2 Grivel G12 NewMatic Crampons (C2)
  • 5 Grivel Crampon Bags
  • 2 Grivel 190mm crampon extension bars

I hope that this will go down well with all our clients to have newer and just a little better equipment for the coming winter seasons. I’m looking forward to using the new toys.

Last Winter Skills Course

The weekend saw the last winter skills course of the 2017/18 winter season. It has been a weekend with some great weather and lots of sunshine. However, the snow is now slushy and it became more difficult to find places to use ice axe and crampons. On the way in to Coire an t-Sneachda we also spotted an avalanche coming out of Jacobs Ladder. It was a great finish to the season and I’m now looking forward to Spring and summer with lots of kayaking.
