Replacement pick for the Petzl Nomic I, Quark II, Ergo II ice axes.
The pick is manufactured by a special process from high strength armor steel and then heat-treated. Due to the special properties of the steel grades used for picks production, heat-treatment allows to obtain an extremely high hardness level while maintaining elasticity.
This results in increased durability and service life - the characteristics which are particularly important for outdoor dry-tooling and long mixed routes. The aggressive geometry of the pick allows for secure placement on the tiniest holds and edges but requires a special (top-down) hitting technique when climbing pure ice routes. Designed for: competitive ice climbing, dry-tooling, mixed climbing mountaineering.
