Not sure if this has been covered here before, but anyone have any experience with either the Vargo Ascent or Vargo Crevice stakes?
I have had poor luck in Southwestern soils with really skinny titanium stakes and even regular aluminum shepherd hook stakes. With my tarp tent, I usually use Shepherd Hook stakes for the less load bearing points, and MSR groundhog-style Y stakes for the guy lines and other tensioned points. Still, I'd like something lighter. Has anyone tried these? Comments?
PS - I have also broken the heads off of Easton Nano stakes, so I'm not the most gentle stake user.
