Here's what others have to say...

What is the Pick Angle for Ice Versus the Dry Setting?

Responded on

100 degrees for Ice, and 105 degrees for Dry Tooling. Extra 5 degrees make it a lot easier to hang onto thin rock ledges.

Excels on mixed routes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm a beginner ice climber, I decided to go with the Cassin X-dream Ice tool because I'd like to get into mixed climbing and these seemed like a nice option. So far they're awesome, I've only used them on pure ice routes but my boyfriend has tried them on some mixed climbs, here's what he had to say: They excel on mixed and dry tooling routes. Edging on them is insane, super down-turned and catch really well on pure rock if you keep them sharpened.

As for myself, I like that the handle is large and supported enough to allow for solid rests as well as preventing me from overgripping. I'm really excited to grow into these, as a beginner I probably could have gone with something simpler, these are perfect for anyone who likes to cruise mixed routes!

Excellent ice tool when customized

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had a chance to test these in Adirondack Mountainfest. I was very impressed. The routes we climbed were of vide variety from steep and fat, to thin and no ice (some Dack style dry-tooling on mossy rock). The X-Dream Ice picks were modified with custom weights, so my experience may not be what a user with an of the shelf tool may get. I love my Nomics, but these performed at least as well. The swing was natural, the stick was great and not hard to remove (when there was ice). The picks are super tough, probably tougher than the Petzl Ice pick on my Nomics. The hand grip was super comfy and confidence inspiring on steep terrain. There are a few potential issues. First, as I mentioned I tested tools customized with pick weights. I expect that without the weights the tool would not swing well on ice. Second, the grip handle size cannot be adjusted. It was fine with me (my glove size is right between M and L) but beware if you have large hands. I was told that the X-dream Competition Pick and X-Dream Ice pick have quite different angles, something to be aware. Overall, this is an excellent tool that I highly recommend, especially if you are not happy with Nomic. Camp athlete Ian Osteyee has put a lot of hard work behind developing Cassin tools and the results are compelling.
