Hi everybody,

being interested in ice climbing and dry tooling I've been stumbling on the e-climb Cryo tools (seems to be a small Spanish manufacturer).

There's not too much about them on the internet, but form what I could read so far they seem to be good value with a pretty decent quality. I've been thinking about buying: 1)two ice axes CRYO F 2) two "DRY" picks 3) the "TRIG" to enhance the grip possibilities.

Has anybody an opinion on the tools and accessories I've been thinking about?

Thanks and Cheers

Hi Gunkiemike,

Thank You, yes, I've read this, but it's dealing with the more aggressive version Cryo 2, while I'm looking for more information on the Cryo.

yo, I got a pair of the cryos. They were the first ice tools that I bought, and have put in three seasons on them, each season about 7 days on WI4, as well as several day-long alpine ice and steep snow climbs. I have the hammer and adze, but without the trigger rest.

what's good about them? noticeably lighter than all my partner's ice tools (quark, nomic, cobra, etc). the lightness is nice in the alpine. They also have a modular design which is cool, customizable.

what's alright or not to like? my partners have all said something along the lines of there not being 'enough weight'. compared to a tool like the nomic, there isn't much weight behind the swing. It's true that I can feel a difference in my partners' tools, i decided to stick with the cryos and get used to them, having bought already bought them.

I've been using them exclusively on ice, where they perform more than ok, but it seems like they would really shine climbing mixed

Hope that helps!
let me know if you've any more questions.

Hi pizza.eater,

Thank You for your reply, sounded as if you've been satisfied with them. Do you still use them, or did you put them away? Is there anything particular about the handling, any suggestions what to keep an eye on, what to do/not to do?

I've been ordering the axes as well as the rest of the stuff. I'll try them out on a dry-tooling route the next days.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
