Petzl Quark Ice Axe

Petzl Quark Ice Axe

Availability: In stock

The Quark is Petzl's classic, all-round ice tool, and this new version is even better than before. Three griprests give you options for hand placements on the axe: one at the base for your little finger, one higher up for your fore finger and one above that for matching two hands on the same tool. The fore finger rest doubles as a quick release mechanism enabling the grips to be moved to the top of the axe with minimum effort and fuss even with gloved hands. The lower pinky rest rest now flips up too, making it easier to plunge the axe into snow.

Petzl Quark Ice Axe

The Quark is Petzl's classic, all-round ice tool, and this new version is even better than before. Three griprests give you options for hand placements on the axe: one at the base for your little finger, one higher up for your fore finger and one above that for matching two hands on the same tool. The fore finger rest doubles as a quick release mechanism enabling the grips to be moved to the top of the axe with minimum effort and fuss even with gloved hands. The lower pinky rest rest now flips up too, making it easier to plunge the axe into snow.

The hammer, adze and pick are all separate from each other and can be used on any other of Petzl's new range of axes. This means that you can fit highly technical Nomic picks to the new Quark, or you can retain the standard picks and you can remove the hammer and adze as you see fit depending on the type of climbing you are involved in. By stripping all of the accessories off the Quark it can weigh as little as 465g. This is a highly adaptable tool that will serve you well in the mountains and for waterfall ice or Scottish winter climbing.

  • Shaft curved below the head and GRIPREST QUARK handrest at the bottom of the shaft to protect the hands on ice climbs
