This is getting really good! I知 starting to get pretty excited. Makes it hard to study! Haha.

Ok. Glad to hear I知 not the only one who doesn稚 like them. I definitely see the benefit, and I知 sure it has saved some people some bad falls, but for me I知 just not interested. I could bring the one collapsable one you mentioned Pika, but I probably won稚. I would never use it. Would just be extraneous weight.

How much of the AZT have you actually hiked Pika? I didn't know you knew so much of it.

Yeah, I took another look, and microspikes do seem like a pretty good option for just regular ice walking. Yak trax still seem seem pretty weak though. With only that one strap,Look like they could slip off at a moments notice.
