Warning for idiots
Since the normal route & the trail to the Britannia Hut start at Mittelallalallin which is almost immediately on the glacier and accessable to anyone who can buy a ticket, this warning exists.
(Perhaps one is needed at Mt. Hood in the US lest someone try to repeat the claimed high heels ascent of that peak.}

You have no idea how many times I thought about wearing high-heeled shoes on a trip and then thought, "Better not."

At least this sign would make the decision simple.

Maybe this sign should be at the Grand Canyon trailhead. The three times I've done the GC, I saw women in high-heeled shoes on the trail. While in Yosemite, I saw women in dresses and a guy in Hush Puppy loafers on the Yoseemite Falls trail.

Aren't those mono rear-point crampons? Excellent for tricky heel-hooking moves...

I've seen women in high-heeled sling-back shoes slipping & sliding on the trail to Half Dome. My husband saw a man in the Yosemite Upper Pines campground bathroom who was nattily attired in a tuxedo & black patent leather shoes. (We speculated the man was headed for dinner at the Awahnee but didn't have the $$$$ to stay there).
