    For a bomb proof stake I go with the Large groundhogs. I've had a set of ten for years now. I recently bought some of the GH mini's, not so happy with them. There picky about the angle there set and you have to practically bury them. I also have been using msr needle stakes for holding over bare rock.

    I am mainly looking for something that can hold and withstand a little abuse up in the BWCA. My aluminum shepherd hooks didn't do so well last year. Basically camping on rocks.

    What stakes do you use?

    I use groundhogs and titanium shepherds hook stakes. Usually the groundhogs for the tarp corners and the hooks for the doors.

    A compliment of the highest order!

    To stay on topic, I'll say I bent 2 of my aluminium gutter spikes in the rocky ground near my driveway on a test hang. I'm using some steel nails about the same size for now, until I get more aluminium. I'll keep the steel ones around for home/car camping, and be careful with the aluminium on the trail.

    We use Vargo Ti stakes. They survived Quinn's Philmont trek.
