Technical ice axe for mountaineering and ice climbing.
The Petzl Quark Ice Axe
is a technical ice climbing tool for vertical and mixed ice climbing. This version comes with a removable adze fitting for cutting compacted snow and ice.
The Quark is smooth and balanced; the interchangeable ICE T pick is tapered to 3mm for excellent penetration in all ice types, and is shaped for stable hooking on both rock and ice. The griprest increases climbing comfort and makes it possible for leashless climbing, and you can also add the Trigrest for even greater flexibility with one or two hands.
The Quark is designed for serious ice climbers
or those who want to advance onto vertical ice climbs.

Good specialised ice/mixed tools., 03 February 2010
By Hewin (Shropshire)
These tools inspire remarkable confidence. In the recent cold snap I used them on water ice in the Idwal area for the first time and found them very well balanced. I'm not 100% sure about the leash system if I'm honest but for this style they work well (you can always use them leashless or with an umbilical). They aren't the sort of tool you want for doing anything below a Scottish winter grade III as plunging the access is more tiring (even without the removable rest) and arrests are more difficult. For the job they were intended I would who hearted recommend them.
