Sharping Ice Climbing Tools


Step1 Use a 10-inch Mill Bastard file, although you can get by with a shorter version. Put your ice climbing tools in a vise while sharpening to make the process easier. Step2 Stroke the file away from you. If you draw the file back toward you, it becomes dulled and less useful. Make your sharpening strokes smooth and even. Step3 Work on honing the flat surfaces into sharp points. Follow the existing points, and do not try to change their direction. Step4 Sharpen from the front of the tool to the back. This helps to maintain the points. Step5 Buy replacement points for your crampons. Filing eventually will wear down your ice climbing gear. Replacing the points will ensure you'll be able to dig into the ice and rock surfaces.

Crampons for winter


everal manufacturers of crampons for hiking/glacier travel. You want something w/ 6-10 Pt's, some can even be configured so they hinge in the middle. The bright side is the price of this class of crampon, they're a lot cheaper that the type you would climb a frozen waterfall. Should be any where from 39.95-100.00 and can be found at Campmor, EMS, Seirra Tradingpost. A word of caution...Do not attempt to climb vertical ice with a cheap pair of crampons, even if they have front points. I foolishly almost fell off some steep ice in the Whites when the points (both) sheared off my left crampon. If your not going to climb try to buy a pair w/out the forward facing front points. Hiking down tired your a lot more likely to hook frontpoints and trip, it'll happen every time you don't pick your foot up high enough. Also, get an ice axe, affords extra confidence when traveling up/down steep terrian. Enjoy Your Winter Hiking
