Candela Ice Screw Ice Axe - Yellow
Candela is a tool to remove the ice stuck into the ice screws. It is also useful for building Abalakoffs and anchors, because it is equipped with an extraction hook to pull the lanyard and a retractable blade to cut lanyards or webbings. It attaches easily to the harness thanks to the plastic hook or it can be placed inside the ice screws (the soft plastic material does not damage the surface of the screws). - Activities: ice climbing - Materials/construction/technologies: plastic, steel

Founded in 1818 in Courmayeur, it is the oldest manufacturer of mountaineering gear still in operation. Grivel is the surname of the founders Henry and Laurent. The company was sold in 1982 to a group of enthusiasts gathered around Gioachino Gobbi.
With the new millennium Grivel decided to devote its efforts and investments to improving the safety of mountaineers.
In 2003, Grivel began fitting all crampons with the new antibott, the only "proactive" one that expels snow accumulated under the plate between the points of the crampons. In 2014, Grivel patented and built the first carabiner with two opposing opening levers that make total safety for the user without the need for any intervention on their part. The safest carabiner ever produced. The Twin Gate carabiner was awarded the "Compasso d'Oro", the Oscar for design, for the first time in the outdoor industry.
