Take a look at the original Mountain Safety Research® newsletters of 1969 and the early 1970s, and you’ll see our original forays into winter tools: tubular pickets, the legendary Thunderbird™ ice axe, and even an ice screw with the now ubiquitous “coffee grinder” handle. This stuff is in our DNA. Today, MSR’s venerable snow anchors rank as the world standard of snow protection on expeditions around the globe.
Our patent-pending design utilizes a frame-and-decking combination to reduce weight without compromising holding power.
- Patent-pending design creates the lightest snow fluke available.
