    Ridiculous Clearance

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I had a chance to demo the Ergo and the bulge clearance is amazing on these tools.! I normally use the Quark and have been pretty happy with them for steep ice., until i used these. It definitely takes a little getting used to coming from a Quark due to the aggressive clearance. But it does make climbing steep ice even easier. I don't climb mixed terrain but I'm sure these would perform great on that too.

    Confidence as a beginner

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    As a first time ice climber, I was not entirely confident in my ability to send pitches. But with this ice pick I was able to enjoy my entire day out on the ice. I was never scared of hitting my own helmet thanks to no hammer. I was also confident in my ability to hold on even with gloves thanks to the adjustable grip. If I were to continue ice climbing, I would definitely purchase this ice tool.

    Great for dry tooling or mixed

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great tool when used what it was designed for. I bought a set of these strictly for dry tooling/mixed climbing, yes I have used them on ice but found the angle is way to extreme and makes swinging very awkward.



    If you are looking for a specific tool for anything overhanging these a great. If you are looking for an all around do everything tool stick with the Nomic or Cobra. I find I really only use these when I am screwing around with friends dry tooling.

    Ergo In Action

    Petzl Says;

    This film demonstrates proper ice screw placement technique, as well as how to set an anchor and a v-thread in waterfall ice. We will discuss the key technical elements, but remember that when swinging your tools into the ice, it is crucial to understand the medium on which you are climbing. The quality of the ice, its structure, the terrain above, recent changes in temperature - all these factors and others must be considered before you step off the ground and onto the ice.

    Mixed?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Still one of the best in the catagory. Good even grade 3 ice and really really good on steep mixed. Amazing picks. A tool that should see more people climbing on them. Most would be surprised just how much better this tool would make them in just a little time.

    Best in the business

      I only got in a couple of trips with these before the ice melted out. But, compared to the other ice tools I used, these were fantastic. It took a bit to get used to the radical curvature of the shaft, but once you get used to that you'll love the angle in which your hand sits. Much more comfortable to work up long stretches. The multiple hand positions make climbing over bulges or matching hands a breeze. These are definitely for ice/mixed/dry, and not for technical mountaineering. Probably want something more like the Quark for that. The
