Gear Question

Hi,
I will mostly be doing mountaineering...

Posted on

Hi,
I will mostly be doing mountaineering up to 7500m, ascend, descend, traverse on glaciers, snow, rocks etc, mayb some ice climbing, but most likely not much at all.
I have Scarpa Phantom 8000 US10 size & Scarpa Triolet Pro US9.5 size boots.
- Was wondering if these Grivel Air Tech Crampons with NEW-MATIC binding will fit both boots?
or a different binding is bettter?
- And if they are the best crampons for my intended use?
or offerings from Petzl or Black Diamonds are better?

Thank you everyone for assistance.

These are going to be great for you... you may want a G12 also

But I would ALWAYS choose a Black diamond Sabertooth. The sabertooths are so veritale it will blow your mind!!!! Everything from vertical ice....to glacier traverses, to glissading...to ski mountaineering.

I believe that petzl also makes a comperable crampon to the air-techs
