If your first-round pick didn’t work out .…

If your Petzl Quark, Nomic, or Ergo ice tool has seen better days, replace your worn-out or damaged pick with the Petzl Ice Pick. The Ice Pick provides plenty of stiffness but tapers to 3mm at the tip so you can still get one-swing sticks in cold, dense ice. The sloped-shape serrated teeth enable easy hooking and unhooking for reverse positions, and its rock-friendly tip makes it suitable for use on mixed routes.

Responded on

Reid,

I'm not sure what version of the Quarks you have but this item fits the following:

QUARK ice axes (U19 M2, U19 P2)
NOMIC (U21, U21 2, U21 3)
ERGO (U22, U22 2)

If this doesn't help let me know and I'll keep researching for you.

The older version fit the Cascade picks, I think they changed in 2010. From what I've heard it doesn't sound like it..

Durable, strong and lighter weight

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My husband and I both ice climb and mix climb. We have used these picks for both sports on the Nomic and the Quarks. When new, this pick can do most anything and is phenomenal on steep, technical ice as well as launching to a pocket that you hope will be good. These do wear down like any ice and mix gear, but hold their point and sharpen well.

Okay

These work well if you are more focused on mixed. They shatter ice easily due to the larger than 3mm tip that Petzl claims it to be. For waterfall ice Taper the pick down to a true 3mm with a sharp file, reshape the first inch or so of teeth so they hook to the rear and send it.

Petzl makes the best picks

I used these picks last season and always had solid bomber sticks. Except when the ice was chunking to dinner plates, these stuck great on the first swing.
