Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used this thing as part of our kitchen setup on a Denali expedition. We voted it one of the most useful pieces of "luxury" gear.

On Denali you don't want to use any spare water for washing since you have to melt everything and it takes forever. We were cooking messy stuff (pasta, mac&cheese, quesadillas) every day and this thing makes clean-up without washing so quick and easy.

A must for multi-day winter camping where you're cooking more than just dehydrated stuff. Will also bring on all my car camping trips in summer as well.

Would this tent be suitable for Denali, or is it not bomber enough? I'm trying to avoid getting a super-heavy expedition tent that I'll never use again. The lighter weight of this one is appealing - I could see myself using it for winter camping in the Sierra where the weather is not so extreme but the light weight is a huge asset.

I'm having trouble deciding between the Clip-On and Strap models. I think I will primarily be using these crampons with ski boots (Dynafit TLT5) for ski mountaineering, but it would be nice to be able to use them with my hiking boots occasionally as well and not have to own two pairs of crampons. Are there significant disadvantages of using the strap model vs the clip-on with ski boots?
