Lost: khatula micro spikes

Post by Deer » Sat Oct 17, 2020 3:46 pm

Hiked Princeton last weekend 10/10.
Lost red Khatula size large micro spikes with and orange caribiner.
Honestly, I stashed them to drop weight and like a moron forgot until I was back down at the last camping/4wd parking. .
2nd switchback up past 4wd parking (camping area).
On the right, small pile of rocks, slightly visible.
Thinking of making a trip out there to look next weekend if they are t found

I wouldn't waste your time, you can get microspikes on amazon for $15-20 that are just as good as the obscenely expensive Kahtoola brand. I sincerely don't understand how they sell so well when there are so many that are a third the price that are just as good.

I've got a hundred-some miles on mine, they've never given me issues. All they need to do is stay on your feet and not break. What's worse about them, in your experience?

Capt, my buddy lost one half of my set of M khatoolas on Buckskin. Let me know if you'd be interested in selling your single.

That’s awesome! They just get clumpy and packed all kinds of snow. I’ll never buy non- kahtoolas. Ive enjoyed them a lot.
