The Petzl QUARK is one of the most popular ice tools of all time and is a highly adaptable ice axe that is perfect for technical mountaineering and ice climbing. It has a well-balanced ICE pick that allows for secure placements on a variety of ice types. The TRIGREST and GRIPREST handrests make it easy to hold and comfortable to use in a variety of situations. They also provide a better grip on the handle when climbing through challenging sections. The QUARK is fully modular, making it easy to use on a variety of technical terrain, including snow couloirs, gullies, north faces, and ice routes.

The overall weight of the Petzl Quark Ice Axe at 550grams is a really great weight to get the balance between being heavy enough to feel nice sinking into hard waterfall ice, and being light enough to carry in the mountains as a technical mountaineering tool. 

The Adze version of the Petzl Quark is perfect for whenever snow or alpine ice is expected. It efficiently cuts T-slots and snow bollards for anchors as well as being handy to clear belay ledges or even bivvy ledges when you're getting desperate.
