Heavy but worth it when you need them
December 26, 2010
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.

Do what drag-racers do to lighten a stock car: Drill small holes in strategic locations to lighten it even more! You can easily reduce a quarter of the anchor's weight by drilling small holes in the main part of plate/body.
