Petzl Quark Ice Tool

Details

QUARK is a versatile ice axe designed for technical mountaineering and ice climbing. Its balance and ICE pick allow solid placements on a variety of types of ice. The TRIGREST and GRIPREST handrests make it easy to handle and comfortable in many different situations. They provide a more effective handle grip for difficult sections. Entirely modular, the QUARK ice axe adapts easily to technical, varied terrain, such as snow couloirs, gullies, north faces, and ice routes.

  • Versatile ice axe:
    - Shaft curved below the head and GRIPREST QUARK handrest at the bottom of the shaft to protect the hands on ice climbs
    - Shaft has a steel spike and is straight enough for use in piolet-canne mode
    - Shaft is hydroformed for optimal grip in the middle of the shaft, for snow couloirs
    - Overmolded bi-material handle provides good grip while insulating from the cold
    - TRIGREST QUARK and GRIPREST QUARK handrests strengthen the grip on difficult sections
