The introductory crampon that won't let you down.



The simplicty of this makes it hard to resist. Easily adjustable without any tools, and are simple to put on.



My only complaints

In some conditions it will ball up with snow (Now they include anti bot plates)

No where to place the straps after you put them on



Not recommend ice climbing or extreme mountaineering, they have comfortably gotten me through Rainier, Hood, Orizaba, and others.

For 90% of the applications in the lower 48 States these crampons can't be beat. That's why they are the crampons that RMI recommends for their clients on Rainier. They are sticky enough to keep you on the mountain but not so sharp that you will injure yourself and shred your gear (particularly while you are leanring).

Pros

Easy to strap on and take off.

Fits practically any boot. One size fits all.

10 point design works well for small feet.

Points are not so sharp or long that they shred your other gear. If necessary, you can carry them in your backpack without covering the points.

Light weight.

Anti-bot plates are included.



Cons

For small feet, you have to fasten a screw (supplied) to shorten the strips.

The screw spoils the fit of the anti-bot plates. The plates must be modified.

I really like these crampons...
since they fit any boot. I use them a lot for colouir climbing where I don't want to have to wear my heavy duty Sportiva Mountaineering boots. Only thing I don't like is the back plastic which seems to be quite large and does not hug the boot very well. Great for an intro crampon.
