Camp USA's XLC Nanotech Crampon is a lightweight, aluminum crampon that weight-conscious ski mountaineers look for, but steel front points lend an edge when you encounter icy or even rocky objectives. Aluminum points get shredded if you ever try to climb ice or rock, so Camp USA made the front points out of Sandvik Nanoflex stainless steel to solve that issue. Camp's innovative 3D shaped construction (pressed, not bent) makes the aluminum frame sturdier than standard aluminum frames. It's compatible with most alpine touring ski boots, telemark ski boots, and rigid mountaineering boots with toe and heel welts.

AUTHORS: Craig Luebben, Bennett Scott & Cameron Cross AREA: Poudre Canyon, CO THE STORY: Craig Luebben started this project almost 20 years ago when he published a Greyrock climbing guidebook (1991). During his time in Fort Collins, Craig contributed many first ascents to the canyon. With Craig's support, Ben Scott and Cameron Cross of the NC3 spearheaded the effort to release this book online and free of charge to the climbing community. Tragically, on August 9th, 2009, Craig died in the North Cascades while training for an AMGA guide's exam. While Craig could not be a part of the final stages of the process, the NC3 released Poudre Canyon Routes Select as a free download last fall. WHY THIS BOOK IS SPECIAL: After Craig's death, his contributions to the climbing community are helping fulfill a dream he himself never realized - seeing his daughter Giulia attend college. 100% of the profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Craig Luebben Memorial Fund, and will specifically be invested in a CollegeInvest 529 Plan for his daughter. Thanks to a generous donation for the printing costs, every penny you spend on this book will go into that fund. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: Fixed Pin and the NC3 would like to thank these local shops for generously agreeing to donate their share of the profits from this book to Craig Luebben's family: Bent Gate Mountaineering
