    Nice to have

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Picked these up after a descent off Mt. Owen that would have been made far easier if I had a hammer. Every once in a while you need to weld a nut into a crack or hammer a piton home in order to get home. You hardly notice these at all, but they make quite a difference when trying to set some pro for a rappel or checking to see if you can trust an old piton or not.

    Why you need a hammer!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    When I first got my nomics, I didn't get a hammer to go with them. In the San Juan Mountains where the alpine rock is kitty litter and gear is hard to come by, pitons are often the only way to protect a climb. After a few ascents and dinging up the backside of my nomics trying to bash pitons in, I finally spent the $$ to get a hammer and let me tell you! It is soooo much easier to place pitons with a hammer than without. Also, the hammer is useful when you want to tap your other tool deeper into the ice or rock and it doesn't mess up the back of your tool! I find that having one tool with a hammer and one tool with a weight is just about the same weight and swing so its easy to swap tools and not feel like the tools swing differently.

    First impression - it's good

      Unfortunately, I didn't manage to get this until the ice all fell. I hoped to get one day out with the hammer installed, but it didn't happen. so treat this review with that caveat.

      I wanted a mini on my nomics for clearing ice around a screw hanger. I've bashed at the ice with the pick and mistakenly with the head (no no) and feel that a small hammer is the way to go.

      Installed, the mini has a tiny profile. it doesn't stick out much at all. It doesn't weigh hardly anything (about .7 oz). I couldn't tell one tool from the next with my eyes closed.



      I have a rod in my basement for dry tooling and a few actions left me feeling confident that i cannot tell the difference between the two tools (one with, one without the mini).

      But I did not get to swing my tools into ice. i cannot vouch for any differences the mini martel will make on ice.



      i'll let next season dictate whether or not the hammer changes the head weight enough to complain. If i decide that both tools perform equally well, i'll consider getting a second just to eliminate the frustrations of having to swap tools in the middle of setting a screw.

      Unanswered Question

      I bought this but still need to install it on my Nomic. The bolts in there now (i.e. the stock Nomic setup) are very tight, which make me think once I install the Mini-Marteau I should make them equally tight.

      Does the company provide a recommendation for torque rating for installing the bolts?
