Crampons?

A collection of home made crampons on a mountain guide's home. They looked more dangerous than a loaded gun to the head! The guide told me he had found some of them at the base of the glacier. I didn't ask him if they were still strapped to the owner's legs! You don't make those questions before starting a climb! Specially when we learned that three weeks before, two Russian climbers had slipped down the glacier and died on the moraine's rocks.
