Used in mono- or dual-point configuration, the modular, hooded vertical frontpoints perform on everything from tiny rock edges to thin ice smears. Substantial, aggressive secondary points enhance balance and stability. An articulated center strap and Micro-Adjust heel lever provide a secure fit on almost all technical boots. ABS plates included.

WMLGot the new version (stainless steel '09)

Voted 5/5

And they rock! Much lighter than their previous incarnations, these guys get great purchase on vertical ice and again - do not weigh you down on the approach. While I wouldn't want these guys on alpine ice duty due to more variable terrain, these are excellent for a day at Lee Vining Canyon, CA or any other local waterfall ice spot.

In all, a good single-niche (ugh) crampon for technical terrain.
