However, we often appear to be unprepared for ice climbing for the simple reason that training can only be done in winter and on site. Fortunately, the solution to this problem was found years ago with the creation of wooden ice tool simulators, suitable for year-round indoor training. This inspired me to combine my love with ice climbing and dry tooling with my other passion craftsmanship (woodwork). After same tests in my workshop, I came to the creation of optimal wooden tools closely resembling the shape and function of ice axes - robust, light and ergonomic.
The result was exciting not only to me, but to the climbers beside me. The shape of wooden tools is as close as possible to this of Dry-Ice-axes, and the feeling is almost identical. The pick is covered with a sturdy rubber, creating good grip and protecting the holds in the climbing gym from damage. The handle is designed to protect the hand and is also suitable for grip with both hands. Wooden Tools are handmade from multi-ply wood for greater strength and durability.
Wooden tools are intended for indoor use only. Be sure to be secured with rope when using the tools in the training gym and make sure the tools are attached to you. Thus the risk of injuring someone below you if you drop the tool will be avoided.
