Technical climb to the Starbucks?

If you have an old pair of boots and need some grip when shoveling snow, you can just use 1/2" wood screws and screw them to your sole. Cheap, effective, and easily replaceable when they're grounded down.

I've used Yaktrax over the years and they are remarkably effective considering the business end of this traction aid is coiled steel wire, rather than actual spikes. Those wire coils make all the difference on ice.

However, I caution purchasers to either pay extra to get the Yaktrax Pro model, or add a supplemental velcro strap that goes over the top of your boot (which is the only difference between the standard and Pro models). The one disadvantage of the standard Yaktax is that it can pop off your shoe and you will reliably not notice that event until you are several hundred yards, if not miles, down the trail. Do not ask me how I know this. Suffice it to say that while pleased with the performance of Yaktrax, I went through a few sets before I invested in the Pro model, which was several years ago and are still with me.

I never see the XL, and I have size 15s so the large can't even stretch. Oh well

Not to tell you what to do but you might ought to get real crampons. I have the Yaktrax XTR and while nice for snowy hikes I wouldn't do anything resembling climbing in them. And the XTR has a lot more grip than these.

If I get real crampons then I'd have to get real mountaineering boots. As much as I'd want to, I can't afford $400 boots right now.

How deep? I'd imagine you pierce the sole and water seeps in. Also which way do you screw it?
