No, you do not need boots with the K-10s, but when on crusty or icy surfaces
on snow, you may be glad you did.

Fuller Ridge may cause another PCT thru hiker SAR call-out if you don't have
a way to self-arrest.

Hi Folks,
because of the epic snow year we are facing i bought a pair of Kahtoola
K10 crampons
instead of the microspikes.
Next question is: do i need boots for the crampons or can i use them with
trailrunners ?
Does anyone use them successful with trailrunners?
Would you bring crampons / iceaxe to Mt. San Jacinto this year (mid may) ?
Happy Hiking and god bless you all
