Why use crampons?
A crampon is a traction device used to improve mobility on snow and ice during ice climbing. Not only are crampons used during ice climbing, but they are also used for secure travel on snow and ice, such as crossing glaciers, snowfields and icefields, ascending snow slopes, and scaling ice-covered rock.
even more enhanced forms of crampons
these are a £600 worth of winter mountaineering boot, these would be used on possible Everest attempts
