Hey, on the off chance there's anyone still using first generation Quarks (or the Ergo Quarks) and needs new picks - you know that none of the Petzl tools use the same pick and that the original (Cascade) picks are all but unavailable anywhere. Well with a bit of work (one hole to drill and 2 minutes with a hacksaw) you can fit CAMP Awax picks to the Quark. They are a perfect match for pick length and angle and, being a smaller cross section, they penetrate ice "like buttah". I removed the hammer from my Quark, and don't miss it, but if you're a machinist I imagine you could mill out the Awax pick to allow the hammer/adze to stay in place. Best part - the Awax picks are still in stock at CAMP/Cassin and are selling for $15. At that price how can you not give it a try?
