Grivel G14

rated 4.5 of 5 stars
photo: Grivel G14 crampon

Great all around crampon.

Pros

  • Penetrates ice well
  • The step-in binding fit my boot very well.
  • Resists balling up

Cons

  • Not much

I have been using my G14 for three years now for mostly ice climbing.

It has a semi rigid design that really is good, it walks/hikes better than a full rigid, and still climbs WI 4/5 really well. I find that a full rigid like the Rambos do better on steep ice but thenĀ full rigids hike like crap.

The points easly adjustable form dual point to monopoint.

The bindings adjust with no extra tools. I just use the strap on the heel bale for more control.

Overall I would rate this a crampon a A for ease of use and performance.
