The Petzl Quark is a versatile ice axe, designed primarily for technical mountaineering and for ice climbing. Because of the head's modular construction, it adapts to any situation. Interchangeable ICE pick is tapered to 3mm for easy penetration. Easy to use with balance allowing for solid placement on any type of ice. Hooking is more efficient, thanks to the clearance under the head and to the shape of the pick. The GripRest and the TrigRest hand rest ensure a comfortable, powerful grip adapted to leashless climbing. TrigRest is easily adjustable without tools and increases precision pick placement. Ergonomic over-molded handle provides a good grip, even for small hands, and insulation from the cold.
