For those looking for a super-light ice axe with the strength and reliability of a steel pick - the Grivel Ghost! Its slightly curved G-bone shaft (shaft type: 1) will fit comfortably in your hand and it can be used as a walking stick and for crevasse rescue. Whats more, it only weighs a grand total of 265 grams, which is about half the weight of standard ice axes of this kind. Thus, it is an excellent choice for high-altitude mountaineering adventures that require you to go light and fast.
The classic positive pick on the Ghost is hot-forged from carbon steel and is equipped with a large opening for self-arrest or building an anchor. The small adze for cutting steps completes the overall great design. The Ghost really shines in moderately steep, glacial terrain!
