I am trying to decide on Ice Axe or light weight crampons for next year's
I have read many stories and trail journals where hikers fell going up or
down a snowy pass with their Ice Axe safely strapped to their pack. I do
not recall hearing where the Ice Axe was actually out and used for self
arrest while thru-hiking the PCT.
If you have used your ice axe for self arrest while hiking the PCT or know
of someone who has, could you share your experience please?
