Topic - Is winter/ Alpine climbing the real Trad?

j0ntyg on 25 Jun 2013
Trad rock kit has evolved. We now have adhesive rock shoes,& many rock protection aids that are irrelevant on ice & snow. The old guys had none of those. I am thinking that it is not needed to advance the kit on ice & snow, all you will ever need are good axes, crampons and boots. We have them. So apart from personalised hand grips, what do we need? Our boots are OK. I'm not asking about clothes or tents or ropes etc.
So does that make Winter/ alpine climbing the new Trad?
























You need an axe + crampons
