Great ICE pick!

    The Cascade pick, when attached to a Quark or Nomic, penetrates the ice like a hot knife into butter, only faster! The reason for the great penetration is the slender 3mm tip, tapered down from 4mm farther back. These picks are beautifully made too. I have sharpened mine down well over 1/4" and the tool still climbs great! If you are going to do much "slotting" as is mentioned in the description above, I recommend the Quad, a beefier (4mm T rated) pick for the Quark.

    Bottom Line: This is a special ice climbing pick for a remarkable ice climbing tool.

    Stick great, wear out fast

      Now don't get me wrong, I love my Quarks, but damn these picks wear out fast. One over-swing into some rock and they're done! Better pay more attention when carpenter arm sets in. Either way, I wouldn't trade those tools, so I just keep the pick stash stocked.

      Is this the same as the old Grivel Cascade...

      Is this the same as the old Grivel Cascade pick? Will it fit a pair of Grivel Taa-k-oon tools?
