Product Description

Snow Anchors are pretty simple items, but Omega Pacific went above and beyond to make a basic tool even better. The powder-coated, high-visibility yellow paint helps you find your fixed lines in a whiteout. Omega Pacific also rounded off all the edges, so these Snow Anchors don't tear up your pack or other gear.

once you own...
a couple of these, something you never need to buy more of in your lifetime really. But a rep handed me this and I have to admit, smooth edges and color for no more price make this the best choise for those of you starting out. I still prefer trad pickets over tubes.

Re: once you own...
Agree again. My buddy made a few of these with the standard Hardware store T-bar stock. He gave the end a little point, and put in a whole bunch of holes. You can use the holes to clip to your pack/daisy chain, and keep them from getting lost. Having paid next to nothing for them, I didn't mind getting a little rough pounding them into harder snow.
