- Mountain Gear
The first pickets were almost accidentally designed, believe it or not. Plain old angle stock was drilled and threaded for use in the mountains and that tradition hasn’t changed much in all these years. Our pickets, however are designed from the ground up exclusively as snow pickets. Extruded from 6061 T-6 aluminum, the anchor-shaped profile holds better in snow and with no sharp edges, they won’t snag packs or shred ropes, either. Powder-coated high-visibility yellow, they’re available only in 36-inch lengths.
Omega Pacific designed the Snow Anchor for easy, intuitive use during glacier crossings and other alpine adventures. High-visibility paint helps you track your line and gear; Omega Pacific also omitted sharp edges so you won't accidentally punch holes in your pack.
