The Sabretooth Pro Crampon is Black Diamond's best all-around climber for moderate ice flows to classic mountaineering routes. A redesigned construction helps this crampon's stainless steel resist snowballing and rusting while remaining light enough for alpine approaches. Horizontal front points assist with technique during the ascent, and the secondary points offer precision for the descent. An increased rocker works with the low-profile micro-adjust heel to give a secure fit with boots with toe welts.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've used my pair for about 4-5 years and they are unstoppable. Stayed sharp through many mixed climbs and are great for ice climbing, mountaineering, and ski touring. My only small gripe is that the leash to tighten them is a little long and flaps. This led me to stepping on it with the other crampon and cutting it. I just cut it cleanly and used a lighter to keep it from fraying. Has been bulletproof since. I see these on a lot of guides in the NE where I am and have been nothing sort of ecstatic with them.



They fit my Spantiks, but required a longer bar because I have a larger shoe size. Photo is them heading up Lion's head on the Mt Washington winter route.

While these are not the lightest crampons on the market (see aluminium crampons for lightweight mountaineering) - these are a workhorse of the BD ice crampon series.



The horizontal orientated front points are great for purchase, and although not vertically orientated, can KILL IT on vertical ice - in some cases I think these are better on less vertical ice routes (WI3 etc) - the stainless steel is killer on clanking around on mixed terrain where the snow and ice meet the stone.

Would the Sabretooth Pro in theory fit with the Zamberlan Pamir GTX Boot? I'm asking because I'm not so sure. See attached picture.

Looks like this is a known issue. Backcountry and BD ship these with a small toe clip. Yours are at least close, my Koflach Degres (similar to Arctis Expe) are a complete no-go. I'm getting the large bail shipped direct from BD ($5 part, $6 shipping). Will write review if that works or not.

So... After actually using them I can say that when everything's properly set, there's no need to worry. Even in steep and vertical terrain I felt really confident. The crampon fell off twice in the very beginning but not anymore after tightening the screw in the back.



I'd reccomend them for the Zamberlan Pamir GTX boots.

would the sabretooth pro crampon fit with the progaiter booth from Salewa?
