We are hiking to Phantom Ranch (down SK and up BA), and would like to rent some hiking poles and crampons or yaktrax. I know the poles rent for about $2.00 per day. Do all of the GCNP stores rent these?? Should I be calling ahead to reserve??
Also...what is the difference between yaktrax and crampons? We are just looking for something lightweight to use at the tops of the trails if they happen to be icy. Can these also be rented at GCNP? Any idea of the cost to rent these per day?
Thanks for any insight!!
