    Vargo Outdoors "Ascent" Titanium Snow Stakes from zpacks.com

    They are lighter than the MSR groundhogs but just as functional

    I use carbon fiber stakes from TiGoat. I wasn't satisfied with the holding power & strength of the Ti stakes so gave TiGoat's a shot. Holding power is excellent and only 7 grams each.

    ground stakes

    number 14 aluminum knitting needles.

    With a key ring through the end.
    Weight,.... next to nothing. Cost, about $1.00 apiece.
    Plenty of grip in any soil or snow.
    Never more than one man left behind, so far !

    +1 on the DIYGearSupply (BWDD) stakes. The color helps me find them if dropped.

    When you say Roofing Nails do you mean Gutter nails? Because I didn't think roofing nails were any longer than 1-1/2"

    I was guessing that he was one of those "smaller" hilkers and didn't need much tarp, or stakes to hold it!!
