Count on the DMM Anodized Deadman Snow Anchor for crevasse rescue in wet, loose, or sloppy snow where pickets just rip out.

I use it mainly as a top-rope anchor and I am very happy with its performance. When placed in spring snow it feels like it sits in concrete. No movement whatsoever after the initial tug. It is a little bulky to pack, especially because of the steel cable.
Does its job
But it's heavy. Hey - it's a deadman. 4 stars because I know of no lighter option, if this is what you need.
