Ice Walker 6-Point Crampon

rated 5 of 5 stars 6-point instep crampons allow for hiking down steep inclines while carrying a heavy pack, and not having to worry about having a foot come out from underneath you! Which is ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS here on Kodiak on wet grassy steep slopes after it rains! Or while crossing slimy algae covered rocks on steep incline stream crevasses. I ALWAYS have at least one crampon on one foot AT ALL TIMES while out hiking or hunting here on Kodiak! Even if I am planning on just hiking up river beds, because it allows… Full review

Hyper Harpoon

The design allows for very little wear on the rope, less than a standard belay device and it's light and small. The only drawback is you still have to carry a conventional belay… Full review

Alpine Light Crampon

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Got these several years ago. Chose them for their lightweight point configuration. Also preferred the attachment approach — strap and heel clip. Very fast, although as the years go by, I'm finding the strap loop becoming harder and harder to work easily. These crampons appear to be no longer available. Full review
