During Ice Fest our headquarters is the ultimate “toy shop” that a climber can dream of. From clothing to gear if it is made for ice climbing, you’ll find it here! All of the leading manufacturers will have booths set up displaying and selling the latest and greatest gear with sales representatives on hand to answer any questions you might have. And that’s not even the best part! As a participant at the Michigan Ice Fest you are entitled to a 20% discount on all purchases made during the festival.
From now until Ice Fest we will be giving you a sneak peak on a small sampling of what you can expect to find in the sponsor booths!
A wire gate racking carabiner with a wide gate opening and super smooth gate action designed to carry up to six ice screws. The Hub is also superior to a traditional holster for carrying ice tools that have modern shapes or leashes just clip the head.
Grivel Double Spring
An elastic double sling system to avoid losing tools when climbing on rock or ice, solving the problem of modern climbing without a leash. The Double Spring is attached to the harness by looping it through the tape ring over the harness itself.
The two ice axes are attached with 2 small carabiners to the holes on the spike (max 750kg).
The two sections are so elastic that they don’t impede any movement and allow maximum arm extension when required.
Lowa Alpine Expert GTX
A new take on a versatile all-around alpine boot, this insulated model’s design balances flexibility with durability, and excels in both hiking comfort and climbing performance. The Fit Wing features allows for easy ankle articulation, making it ideal for heavy backpacking trips as well as for mixed climbing. Automatic crampon-compatible. Durably waterproof/breathable.
The Ultra Light Ski helps you push the limits while limiting the amount of material in your boot. Our minimalist’s Ultra Light ski sock uses super-fine Merino wool and its natural ability to manage moisture and regulate temperature. The Ultra Light Ski has minimal cushioning and is best paired with custom or very close-fitting boots, as there is little material to pack out the inside of your boot. The Ultra Light Ski features a vented foot top, as well as proper gradient compression throughout the leg and over the calf, stimulating blood flow and keeping your legs feeling invigorated for as long as you wear them. The less is more approach continues with our Pinnacle design, which adds just a subtle hint of color to the sock.

Black Diamond ScrewUp
Protect and organize your winter rack with the Black Diamond Ice ScrewUp. This lightweight, convenient roll-up pouch protects the threads and teeth of your ice screws and saves space when they’re stored in your pack.
