The Petzl Quark is a versatile technical ice tool for mountaineering and ice climbing. It has a type 2 (T rated) curved aluminium shaft which is hydroformed for optimal grip in the middle of the shaft and is straight enough for good plunging with the steel spike. The over moulded handle is made from fibre glass reinforced plastic and it provides good grip and insulation. The Trigrest is height adjustable and the Griprest folds in to make plunging more effective.
The Quarks come with the Petzl ice picks which taper at the tip to be versatile across snow, ice and mixed ground. The head is completely modular allowing the adze, hammer and pick to be changed to suit your needs. It is compatible with the Petzl Pur'Ice pick, mini marteau and massolettes.
