Crampons/spikes for Theodulgletscher


#1

Hi, during the stage from Zermatt to Gressoney la-Trinité we will have to pass the Theodulgletscher (glacier) before reaching the theodulpass. The glacier dosn’t seems to be very steep but it isn’t flat (+ 200 m elevation in 2 km). Are there crampons or spikes recommendet for the glacier? In the obligatory equipment there are no crampons/spikes listet.
Thanks for any advise. looking forward tu run this great and challenging race.

No, they are not on the equipment list and should not be needed. The guides marking and preparing the route will cut steps on anything steep enough to need it.
