dual or mono point on long snow routes up 2 50deg

Tips, tricks, workouts, injury advice.

I would opt for dual points. Depending on the snow conditions, you will probably need the purchasing ability that dual points offer. If there was a chance of soft snow, I would use horizontal points.

Definitely dual horizontal points. If there are short technical sections I would make sure to sharpen the points, sharp horizontal points climb water ice just fine.

Something like the Grivel G12 would work well.

"Snow" and "monopoints" never belong in the same sentence.
