Microspikes

Kia ora all. Can people share their thoughts on using microspikes. Are they at all useful? Are they helpful for crossing slippery rocks? What are people's experiences of using them?

Right. Mine are Asolos, not particularly ridged.
The Kahtoola microspikes sold here now come in two versions: an aluminium and a steel version. I think the steel one has slightly longer teeth and would be more robust if in contact with rock. The extra length of the spikes would also make them better if you're carrying a heavier load
