Walking Boot - Spikes/ Crampons/ Grödeln

Walking Group



This page is to avoid confusion about under boot fixings for our walks. eg It gets confusing when a German mountain hike organiser announces to an English & German readership eg "Walk Needs Grödeln" & English people thinking "I wonder if that means Crampons ?"
