Aspiring Snow Stake with Caps

snow stake
Bryce’s take: 

An outstanding classic that has stood the test of time. Available with or without cable.


Aspiring Snow Stakes are fabricated in New Zealand from high strength aeronautical grade aluminium. Tested and found to have a tensile strength well in excess of the 8kN recommended minimum strength for snow anchors.

  • High tensile 6061-T6 aluminium.
  • Stainless steel driving caps to reduce damage from hammering 
  • Optional 4mm galvanised steel cable with attachment eye die-pressed swage for reliable swage strength

Aspiring originated the mid-clip snowstake in the 1980s, following testing carried out in conjunction with the Federated Mountain Clubs. Aspiring Snowstakes comply with the current recommendations for snow anchors developed by Don Bogie in collaboration with NZGA, NZMSC and LandSAR.
