[pct-l] Axes and Poles

     A couple of summers ago, I ran into a discussion on the JMT about the 
     relative merits of carrying an ice ax vs. ski poles. The ax proponents 
     claimed that the ax would help avoid injury if they slipped. The pole 
     people said that the poles would keep them from slipping in the first 
     I'm hiking the JMT this summer, and would appreciate comments for and 
     against both opinions.
