Petzl Returns To Ice Fest

For years Petzl has been very generous by providing crampons, ice axes, helmets, and harnesses to make sure our demo is a huge success.  Petzl, like our other Gold Sponsors, has also sent amazing prizes for the Saturday evening raffle.  Another opportunity for participants is to “pick the brains” of the manufacturers reps that will be on hand to answer any questions on gear.  Be sure to corner Petzl representative Bryan Kuhn sometime during the weekend and find out what is new with Petzl!



The Nomic allows the entire rock climbing repertoire to be transferred to ice. Thanks to its adjustable ergonomic handle, it offers multiple grip modes and limits the risk of snagging when switching hands. The ice pick allows easy penetration in any type of ice, and pulls out easily. The modular head has two removable pick weights to balance the axe and propel it into the ice with an exceptional swing. The Nomic can also be equipped with a hammer when placing pitons.

Lynx Crampons

Last year we practically had people fighting over these crampons at the demo!  The long anticipated offering from Petzl is a phenomenal technical ice climbing crampon.  From snow couloirs to dry tooling, the Lynx is a super versatile crampon. The modular front points allow for many options: dual or mono-point, long or short, and/or asymmetrical. They come with two types of interchangeable front bindings to adapt to boots with or without toe welts.

Thanks Petzl for committing to support Mid West ice climbers and sending Bryan to this years Michigan Ice Fest!
