I’ll see if I can get some up elsewhere.

No spikes needed at this time of year but in the winter I use C1 crampons - you need boots rigid enough... my Scarpa Marmolada Pros are the nearest I’ve ever found to an all-round boot. Micro spikes are not appropriate for any serious mountain winter environments. They’re for not slipping on the way to the pub.

Midges will be gone by mid sept. Ideal time of year given good weather!
