The Mountaineer is one of a few select shops in the U.S. carrying Grivel’s new Mega KG6 Twin Gate Carabiner.
The Mega KG6, with its two opposing solid gates, is considered an auto-locking carabiner, making it safe as a belay ‘biner, an anchor master point, or as a replacement for a traditional locker in any situation that demands the extra security of a locking carabiner. The KG6’s unique twin-gate design stays closed and effectively stays “locked” thanks to its opposing gates.
The Mega has a sleek, streamlined design that works for the bolt-end of quickdraws, and you can easily tie Munter hitches once you get to the anchor. Ice and alpine climbers will appreciate the twin-gate functionality in icy winter conditions as they will not freeze shut like a screwgate.
