Get the Point?
Sometimes it doesn't pay to leave your pointy gear at the bottom of a chute! Making use of "hand axe" sharp rock to traverse steep frozen snowfield on our way to the summit along the west ridge.

Soooo many times, I've done this but the consequences on North Guard were the worst! Pretty funny now!

I've done the same thing but had to use an old tree branch. Glad I didn't have to use it to arrest.

BWAHAHA!! I've done the branches on icy trails, or pockets full of rocks to throw down and walk on. I am not a micro spike person! Crampons or nothing. >:)
