Quick crampons

These crampons are wonderfully quick and easy to put on ski boots. They are also strong enough to handle limited rock sections. One report queries whether they are 10 or 12 points. The answer is 12 points. One drawback is that they are adjusted by a screw, not the quick adjust on more recent versions of this crampon. They will not fit a hiking/climbing boot without a wide welt.
The ice axe is good on steep sections for which it was designed. It is too short for a walking stick.
