A great addition to your snow study tools, the Backcountry Access Extended Column Test (ECT) cord cuts through snow and crust when performing an extended column test. 

  •  While a compression test looks at fracture initiation (is it going to crack?), an ECT looks at propagation propensity (is it going to propagate across the slope?)
  • 2 m (6.5 ft.) ECT cord has knots every 24 cm (10 in.), and 2 swaged aluminum teeth at the center to cut through snow and crust
  • Handles on each end provide grip while sawing
