When I began hiking (not just walking in the woods), I was about 17 years old. I could leap from rock to rock and climb all day, only to experience some slight soreness the next day. Now, double that age and two kids later, I could use a little help. Trekking poles aren’t just for the old and feeble like me. Serious climbers are limited when it comes to the gear that they can bring along, yet many of them still opt to carry trekking poles. They can reduce fatigue by an incredible amount, making them lifesavers on long hikes. The latest from Alps Mountaineering is the lightweight Alliance Trekking Poles.
