If the snow is very hard or icy, affecting our stability and safety, we will use our crampons to progress. We want to insist on the relevance of knowing how to anticipate the type of terrain and snow we are to find. If our stability is severely hindered, it might be very difficut to find a safe spot to put our crampons on. If we know how to anticipate the difficulties, and the terrain is too steep to change to crampons, we may use the adze to carve a small “balcony” and put our crampons on comfortably and safely.
