While Grivel's best selling Nepal SA and timeless Monte Bianco ice axes will assist you across a glacier and through easy terrain, Mountaineers will quickly find these axes left wanting on more technical climbs and steep pitches. To the uninitiated, they may look similar, but the security offered by a technical ice tool is leaps and bounds ahead of a walking or classical ice axe. Firm, easy, secure placements in waterfall ice and mixed pitches make your climb, and descent, a whole lot safer.

Introducing the Grivel The North Machine Carbon Ice Axe.

Extremely durable and yet still relatively lightweight, the Carbon composite shaft saves weight without compromising strength or rigidity. Grivel's Vario system allows for a range of hammers, picks and adzes to be interchanged on the North Machine Carbon's head, providing versatility for the alpinist who wishes to lap waterfall ice one week, and pioneer a new route or first ascent the next.

The North Machine Carbon comes fitted as standard with a hardened steel pick, increasing durability and reducing time spent filing to maintain the performance of your tools. Pair a set of North Machine Carbon's with Grivel's Double Spring Rotor leash and you will be well equipped for technical alpine climbing and ice climbing.

Australian longicorn borers are known worldwide for their ability to aggressively infest eucalypt plantations. In Australia, too, longicorn outbreaks have struck plantations in Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland. By contrast, outbreaks of longicorns are rare in native eucalypt forests. Why? Well, it’s not clear, but the current theory is that to be successful, longicorn populations must develop in forests that are persistently drought-stressed. In plantations, a single species is often planted over a varying landscape that is, in some cases, too dry. Native eucalypt forests, however, generally comprise numerous species leading to a patterned landscape of species that is more resilient to stress.

Over the last couple of days I have had a couple of short forays into Mount Field National Park. This magnificent park has landscapes that range from temperate rainforest with beautiful waterfalls to extensive alpine areas with some stunning mountain topography. Mount Field National Park, along with Freycinet National Park, were both declared national parks in 1916, making them the oldest national parks in Tasmania.
