Monos or Duals for icefall ? Always used monos so far. What’s people’s views ?

*something about how will Gadd said horizontals are superior on ice 10 years ago*

** something about 99% of mere mortals i.e. the rest of the world preferring monos for waterfall ice**

I've got both, Monos for delicate and where I may need to do some thin ice or mixed moves.  Duals when it's thick ice or very fluted to get a better more stable stance. In either cases lighter is better and needs to fit your boots properly.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
