An excellent “hybrid” semi-rigid crampon at a reasonable price. The nylon webbing strap is easy to secure (one wrap around the boot). The flat front points provide nice holding power while front pointing. So far, no complaints with this model.

I've been using these since 2005. Probably climbed Mt. Shasta five times in these, and various other peaks in the Sierra Nevada during winter / spring.

Interestingly, the heel piece / linking bar is interchangeable with other Petzl crampons. So you can just buy the Dart / Dartwin front pieces from Petzl and have a setup for winter ice climbing too.

mibuVery good crampons

Very good semi-rigid crampons. My only complain is that webbing strap is too long, but this is not a real problem.

Voted 4/5

My mother got them for me as a surprise for my birthday one year. I still use them to this day, but I don't like how they do not fit onto my warmer mountaineering boot. So I end up having to wear by worn out boot and as a result I end up with blisters. Another issue is that a partner of mine has size 14 boot which it did not fix. Besides this these are a good all around crampon.
