  1. crampons: strap-on or step-in??

    Hey, just wondering, what is sufficient for alpine climbing in the Cascades, strap-on crampons or step-in? I'm planning on doing lots of alpine rock this summer, so I need something that's going to get me across moderately steep to easy snow and possibly ice. I'm not planning on doing any steep/waterfall ice where tools are necessary. I'm thinking that any time I have on crampons...I won't be tied in. Do I get boots and step-in crampons or go lite and stick with hiking shoes and strap-ons? What would the alpine climber that wants to get routes done in single day pushes do?? Thanks for the input!!
