Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $130

Awesome crampon. Stiff enough to front-point in, but still enough flex for walking on a glacier. The powder coating comes off if you use them on rock, so just be sure to rub WD-40 on them after each climb(prevents rust.) Overall, great crampon for when you will be doing glacier, vertical rock and ice all in the same climb.

Black Diamonds best all-around crampon, the Sabretooth features a lightweight stainless steel design. Equally at home on Denali as climbing in Ouray, the Sabretooth features horizontal frontpoints to provide stability in snow, penetrate alpine ice, run up waterfall ice and hold rock edges securely. The secondary points create a stable platform with shear resistance for control in mushy conditions; serrated sub-points grab and hold when you're rocking over your feet. Its stainless steel construction wont rust and avoids environmentally toxic coatings that wear off in the mountains.
