This is a great Ice axe for winter mountainering. It feels solid and sturdy under weight and doesn't have the shakey head of other axes that make you think its about to fall apart. This was made by Grivel with a North Ridge badge on it. You can't go wrong for this price
North Ridge Pinnacle ice axe review, 25 December 2012
By Lurch (Bournemouth)
Okay, so the pick and spike are made by Grivel and it's under £50. 'Nuff said.
It's got a lightweight feel, which means you'll use less energy lugging it around, but you won't be able to use the weight to swing harder.
I've also used a Grivel Munro, and I have to say, I prefer my North Ridge.
I have one slight criticism - the metal clip that is used to hold the leash on is dismal. The first time I used it, I had maybe been using it for about half an hour when the leash fell off. In the end I tossed the clip and put it on with an overhand knot - I'd have rather just done that in the first place.
