Nothing but snow & a few thousand feet of nothingness down either side, and that's the first time I wished I had traction & some poles.
    I picked up a pair of the microspikes last fall. I've only had to use them a couple of times, but they worked really well for me- worth the dough.

    Kahtoola Traction System

    The ice on the trails has been so bad here in the valley I decided that my 6 point crampons needed an *upgrade*. I did not want the aggressive glacier crampons that are sold all over the place. I went to AMH in Los Anchorage and talked myself into a set of the KTS. I had my first try our on them today on a lightly used trail with a partially packed trail and spots of glaciated ice at a fairly step angle. These steel points dug in great and I am totally impressed. I can't wait to try Lazy Mountain in the next few days!
