Those "casual" crampons aren't worth much once you start hiking steep, icy terrain. Taking a nod from technical climbing crampons, the Kahtoola KTS Steel Crampon straps to hiking boots so you can conquer rugged conditions throughout winter. The biggest difference between this crampon and climbing crampons is the Leafspring Flex Bar that lets your hiking boot bend and flex like it's supposed to. The spikes have a steel construction to stay sharp, reliable, and free of rust after heavy use.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
