An ice piton shaped like the pick of an ice axe, the Hand Hook can quickly be placed in a hole left by an ice tool or pounded into an ice- or moss-filled crack in the rock. Useful for positioning the direction of the belay rope for the second, as well as for protection on mixed terrain or icy rock. The Hand Hook is not designed for protection from long falls.
