Grivel have been making ice axes, crampons and ice screws since 1818. Their metallurgy is simply second to none. From their base looking out at Mont Blanc, they will always be inspired to produce the best.

The Grivel family of blacksmiths, started to transform their production of agricultural tools. So the ice axe came into being surrounded by scepticism.

The English engineer Oskar Eckenstein was received with similar scepticism when he asked Henry Grivel to manufacture the first modern crampons, and it was Henry's son Laurent who made the brilliant addition of the two front points, allowing climbers to stand face on whilst attacking the steep ice and snow gradients.



Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend. I usually go to the shop in Hereford as staff are alwasy very helpful and knowledgeable. So this was the first time I have purchased online and the service was just as good as the shop.
