To crampon or not

I’ve been debating taking crampons.  Based on the information I’ve received from multiple



sources, they’re really not necessary.  No need to bring an additional 2 lbs.

From a former Antarctic skier:

We didn’t take crampons. Walked across blue ice with skins on skis. I could walk with my boots.  There was blue ice was halfway at Thiels – we had a resupply there – the blue ice was near the mountains.  I remember Fiona Thornewill, former solo speed ski record holder from Hercules Inlet, had crampons but she dumped them.  She was pretty well organized on the ice.

That’ll be nice!

They’re deleted from the gear list with a big smile next to it.
