I Picket - 24 inch
Peerless strength-to-weight ratio and unmatched design
The SMC I Picket has a peerless strength-to-weight ratio, as well as an unmatched practical design. The Modified I web depth provides maximum hold, but is also kept compact for ease of handling and packing. The sharp end is precision tapered for easy placement, and the functionally spaced I-hole pattern makes it a versatile anchor in any snow type, as well as facilitating use as a deadman.
Using an I Picket:
Accurate assessment of snow conditions and their potential for change during the day/night is critical in determining correct picket placement. In hard packed snow or ice, place the picket as a stake, driving the pointed end into the snow. Angle the picket (approx. 15°) back from the direction of pull and clip a carabiner into the hole closest to the surface of the snow. In softer snow and warming conditions, bury the picket as a deadman. Place the I Picket horizontally and perpendicular to the direction of pull, clip into the center hole and dig a slot in the snow so that the runner/rope will be pulled in as direct a line as possible.
