    Do you mean the final scrambles before the summit?

    That would indeed be impressive.

    One of the things this board can be very effective with is providing consensus and minority rebuttal. Precisely which tool in which application? I've puzzled over the sub-crampon question for a while; glad to see it being addressed.

    Anyway, which part of the Garfield ridge was that? Right up near the top?

    Thanks,

    I've never felt unstable in either my 6 or 10 points in a variety of conditions and I think the reason is my boots have a LOT of ankle support and general boot stability. So while crampons might fit on softer boots, I don't believe they're the best boot for the job.
