Quark

U019AA00
$197.69

The Petzl Quark is a versatile ice axe designed for technical mountaineering and for ice climbing. Its balance and its ICE pick allow solid placements on any type of ice. The TRIGREST and GRIPREST handrests make it easy to handle and comfortable in any situation. They provide more efficient handle grip for difficult sections. Entirely modular, the QUARK ice axe adapts easily to technical, varied terrain: snow couloirs, gullies, north faces, icefall.

Details:

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
- over-molded, bi-material handle provides good grip while insulating from the cold

- 550 g with PANNE or MARTEAU
Efficient placement on any type of ice
- ICE pick is tapered at the tip (3.3 mm) and versatile across all terrain: snow, ice and mixed

- compatible with Petzl accessories: PUR'ICE, MINI MARTEAU, MASSELOTTES...
- TRIGREST QUARK handrest is height adjustable without tools
