S as I was googling my ass off or trolling on forums I came across a link to a blog about climbing. In this blog the author shares his notes from a lecture given by Colin haley, if you don't know who he is google him. The guy is an amazing climber and obviously does what works for him. One thing I read in the notes for his presentation was that Colin advocates everyone use fully strap on style crampons. Maybe chalk it up to my lack of experience, but that doesn't seem as secure as semi auto or full step in crampons. To the experienced alpinists and climbers what are your thoughts??? Anyone have experiences with this?? Here is the link nasakoski.com/2010/11/colin-haley-cliff-notes
thanks for sharing those notes, I enjoyed reading through it.
