Go Outdoors: Spot the Mistake

Please don’t fix your crampons like this to your boots.

So a friend was in Go Outdoors in Chester recently and saw this! If you don’t know whats wrong with this image and you are planning on going out in the winter. Then you definitely need to come on a Winter Skills Course for Hillwalkers and Mountaineers.

To be fair we can’t blame Go Outdoors, as it is hard to get decent staff who are actually really into the mountains in Urban settings. Whereas somewhere like Llanberis most kids have learnt to put on crampons before they hit puberty.
