Petzl Quark Axe Description

  • Brand : Petzl
  • Season : Perennial
  • Code : 5006683
  • Weight : 0KG
  • Climbing - Axes - Climbing Axes - Petzl Quark Ice Axe

    The popular Petzl Charlet Quark Axe has now been revised and revamped.  A well balanced technical ice tool designed for steep ice and technical mountaineering. The Quark is beautifully balanced and the 'ICE' pick will give you solid placements in 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.  The Quark can be easily adapted to be used with a leash (Petzl's CLIPPER or FREELOCK) for those who prefer the additional security.

    Sizing Information

    Technical Information


    • Equipped with the hammer, the Trigrest hand rest and the Griprest, the Quark can easily be used leashless, or with an optional Petzl FREELOCK or CLIPPER leash.
    • The Quark weighs only 460 g (clean), making it an ultra-high performance ice axe for snow couloirs, for example.
    • Interchangeable ICE pick is tapered at the tip (3 mm) for easy penetration, even in cold ice. Its shape allows stable hooking on both ice and rock.
    • Ergonomic over-molded handle provides a good grip, even for small hands, and insulation from the cold. The lower part of the shaft penetrates snow perfectly when the ice axe is used in piolet-canne (without the Griprest).
    • Carabiner hole under the Griprest
    • The  easily adjustable TRIGREST hand rest braces the hand and the index finger and is new for 2010.  Works brilliantly when climbing leashless.
    • Weight - 550g
    • Comes complete with:
      • T rated ICE pick
      • Hammer
      • 3 Year Guarantee
      • T rated shaft
