At the village in Hunza Valley, Karakoram, Pakista...
Does anyone know where I can get a pair of cascade picks for Petzl Nomics? Ali Jaffri

The best (easiest and cheapest) is to find a set of old Quark Cascade picks and have them machined to fit the Nomics. The pick angle and bolt spacing is the same but the picks need to have the bottom corner trimmed at and angle to fit the Nomic head. The picks also need holes for caribiners and pick weights but that is optional.

Personally I have had success with modifying Ice picks but that is a different topic.

Great idea Ray. I'll probably do that for my friends' tools.

I don't think the pick angle is the same. I didn't that to my Nomics last season. Comparing to my friend's, the angle is definitely different. divnamite

I compared modified Cascade pick on new Nomic against Cascade pick on the old Nomic.

And, I have 2 brand new DRY picks in the packaging as well.

All are priced at $50 each, shipping to the lower 48 included. PM me if interested.
