The MSR Snow Picket is an aluminum anchor for snow protection while mountaineering. The aircraft-grade aluminum is built for strength but won't weigh you down when moving camps. Hammer in strong and hard without worry, as the reinforced end helps prevent damage while the tapered end drives easily into the snow. The two available lengths allow you to choose the right tool for your adventure, and each features a red highlight at the middle clip-in point. At 14oz (20oz for the 90cm length), it's a simple addition for safety.

FEATURES of the MSR Snow Picket

  • Strong: Aircraft-grade aluminum T-beam offers maximum strength with minimum weight
  • Durable: Reinforced hammer-end reduces deformation
  • Efficient: Tapered drive-end penetrates easily
  • Versatile: Multiple, beveled attachment points allow vertical and horizontal placement
  • Visual Cue: Red highlight denotes the middle-clip in point

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and great You can't change much up with a picket, but MSR did a great job of making a light and sturdy anchor. I like the addition of hammer reinforcement so it doesn't get too warped, and develop sharp edges where you contact it with the axe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth the price? This snow picket is about $10.00 more than what you can find if you do a little looking. For the increased price you get a piece of harder metal on the top that improves the durability of the picket well beyond that of others. In the attached picture you can see the difference it makes as these two pickets were both used on the same trips up Rainier and Hood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid snow anchor I like the small touches on this picket - the red marking of the middle hole for when you've been on the move a long time and aluminum hammer surface are smart features that add little weight but plenty of utility. Speaking of weight, this seems very comparable with other top brands, so you're not paying much if anything weight-wise for those nice little features. The 90-cm length is a bit long to carry in a backpack; it might be nice to see a size between 60 cm and 90. Finally, areas for improvement: the clip holes aren't as smooth as I'd like - that may wear out carabiners or hitched slings faster, and it seems like an oversight on MSR's part. If it weren't for that, I'd give this 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Industry Standard I've used MSR Snow Pickets for a while and love them. The reinforced head makes them durable. The multiple sling attachment points are a must and coupled with the marked mid-hole makes them a breeze to use in emergency situations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential gear for mountaineering Bought two of these for my mountaineering kit. Lightweight, durable and like the reinforced top for pounding it into the snow. Plan to put it into use on Baker and Rainier next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice pickets When compared to some other pickets I have floating around down these are much better. They are lighter, rack better, and are higher quality. The red center to make the middle hole is a nice addition. The 60cm are about the perfect length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a picket - can't say too much I have a couple of these and a couple OP pickets. These aren't colored so they might be a little easier to spot in the snow but really, that shouldn't be much of an issue. I believe, these are the lightest picket available. The top cap on the newer model keeps the top from turning into a mushroom of metal after it's been beaten to oblivion which is neat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Design and Updates The newly designed MSR Snow Picket makes both carrying (racking) and use simple, functional, and pain-free. I have a few in the 60cm length, which I prefer for the lower weight/smaller size, although I plan on purchasing one or two of the 90cm lengths soon. I used these pickets extensively in AK (Denali, Mt Hunter, etc), and they've held up incredibly well. Unlike other heavy and bulky snow pickets, which can seem more like big sticks of metal with a few holes than a functional and versatile alpine mountaineering tool, the design on this thing is sleek and well-thought out. Definitely a step way above all other pickets I've used in the past. Some notable features (among others) include red paint around the middle whole for simple identification and easier overall use, a strong, lightweight aluminum build, and tapered ends for ease of use when driving these into snow. It's not easy making a superior, well-loved snow picket, but MSR has done it with this awesome design!
