also worth carrying a small lightweight axe, invaluable if you are on steep icy ground to arrest a slide. Fun can be had practising

Sounds potentially more dangerous…

ha ha, well, yes you do need to use the right techniques, but its not complicated. Thing is if you get into an uncontrolled slide on a hard surface you don't stop until you hit the rocks.
