Two weeks ago, we started up to Walk in the Forest, and after 50 feet of slow careful uphill walking/step kicking in mud/stepping on tree stumps, etc. we gave in, stopped and put on crampons. Yeah we had to worry about crampons getting leaf clogged but we didn't slip, and that seemed to be the point! ;D

Good to see that NE leaf crampons are used year round
Shit John I used to wish I had them on my EBs on trails coming down in the Gunks in late October!

No shit those Gunks trails are deadly in the fall!

Have a quiche, now, or maybe a tort.  You deserve it!
