i forgot to mention that while i was descending the sticky snow balled up im my crampon and i totally fell way down the mountain and almost lost my glasses.. that is why crampons are dumb when quickly descending soft snow... lesson learned
no, it's why you use antibottes or hit your crampons occasionally with your iceaxe. or, just take them off if the snow is that soft. crampon ballups can lead to broken legs or worse. you might even put a rip in those styling blue jeans you wore.

Prescient comment. Altho Everest is clearly too easy. Just get caught up on his past year to get a feel:
