Roaming, Ramblings And Advise For The Wilderness Travler And Outdoor Adventurer
Basic Ice Tools
Other then Trekking poles and walking sticks the only other tools of forward motion I will occasionally use is ice tools. Without making too much out of it, they simply consist of a walking (standard) axe and a good set of crampons.
A Smaller "second" Ice Axe might be carried if the rock features are steep but is usually not required. Both are useful for self arrest.
