Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $110

I used these climbing up Mt. Whitney. I went with aluminum over the steel to just to save weight. I was careful not to step on exposed rocks. They held up fine.

I used a non-mountaineering boot which they are made for and they fit pretty well, never came loose. I used a Sorel Conquest Boots and they actually fit. The boot is wide in the heel so they fit snug on the sole but got they job done. The boot is flexible and the crampon flexed with the boot and never slipped off the soel. I kept them tight.

The straps are long and got in the way. You need to tuck them away or cut the excess off to the right lenght, just enough to pull tight. These you need to stay off the rocks or they will get spurs and they are not as sharp as steel.

I will keep using them for what they are intended for, snow travel with ice, glacier travel. I am very happy with these.
