The Petzl Quark Ice Axe is a truly versatile technical winter mountaineering and ice climbing tool that can be adapted to suit all conditions and climbing styles. This version can be paired up with the Quark Ice Axe Adze to create a pair of stunning winter tools. If you are only ever going to buy one set of winter tools these have got to be on your wish list. 

Because of the easily adapted hand rests you can set them in the perfect position to suit your climbing style, from out there bold leashless to gnarly Scottish gully bashing, you can always be assured of a secure and comfortable grip. They can also be easily removed to enable smooth plunging into snow for security when mountaineering. In fact, you can strip the Quark right down to the shaft and pick for some minimalist leashless sport.

The shape of the shaft has been optimised for balance and precision and with the top rest placed halfway up the shaft, it keeps your hands out of the snow on steep ground. The supplied pick is tapered to just 3mm to give superb penetration into all types of hard ice and mixed ground and is curved to ensure an easy extraction angle. The lower section features an over-moulded handle to provide exceptional grip and insulation from the cold.

The Quark is massively versatile, well balanced and beautifully made and is the perfect do-it-all ice climbing and mountaineering tool.

The product I bought was competitively priced. The video demonstration of the product assisted me in my decision to purchase the item and was very informative, as it showed all of the features and the fit. I chose "click and collect" which was an efficient and quick process. I would definitely shop here again.
