The rubber we use for this exceptional tool has been specially developed to meet our requirements for friction and durability.
Rubber replacement: To replace the rubber, you will need a knife, sandpaper, gloves, glue, and rubber (available on our website). Carefully remove the worn rubber using a sharp knife, taking caution not to injure yourself or damage the wooden surface. Use the knife and sandpaper to carefully remove any remaining remnants of the worn rubber. Ensure that both surfaces (wood and rubber) are clean. Apply glue to both surfaces, following the recommendations provided by the glue manufacturer for best results.
Storage and transportation: These plywood tools should be stored in a dry, dark place.
Cleaning: To clean off magnesium from the rubber, use a cloth and alcohol. The entire tool can be cleaned with a dry cloth.
Important things to know when using GripMonkeys Indoor Climbing Axes: When using wooden axes for dry tooling indoors, treat them with the same delicacy as you would when climbing on thin and delicate ice. Avoid forcing the ice axe; instead, place them gently on the holds.
Never use the stein pull technique! Stein pulls are tool placements where the pick and the head of the axe are set in opposition and are practical and efficient when dry tooling with normal (metal) axes. However, due to the nature of wooden materials, these tools should not be used with backward or sideways wedging in the holds, as they may break. They should only be placed on the holds without being stuck.
Warning: Wooden tools are intended for indoor use only! Ensure that both the climber and belayer wear a helmet when using the tools in the gym.
Unlike multi-pitch dry tooling or ice climbing where attaching your ice axes to your harness may be recommended and preferred to prevent loss, it is important not to attach the Indoor Climbing Axes to yourself, your rope, or your harness. If the tools are attached and you fall, they can fly towards you with great force and cause serious injury.
