Top Glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great grip, great feel. Just enough warmth without being to bulky.

Fit is ALMOST like a glove

I have both the original and the alibi II. the original was a tight fitting glove. it goes on over the course of sever seconds of pulling and squirming. once it's on, it's like second skin.
The Alibi II is a looser fit and feel. I don't get the same heightened tactile sensation. But it is warmer. It has a nice leather palm that is thicker and hopefully just as durable as the original Alibi, but is much less tacky.
The original was sticky like and NFL receiver's gloves with stickem all over. Sometimes I felt like I could hold the ice in them (can't).
The Alibi II has a soft leather palm that will hold a tool just fine but doesn't quite give one the sensation of being spiderman.
They feature a little bit thicker back and fingers with some knuckle padding to take some of that bang out of a slam into a bulge. They're definitely warmer than the original Alibi, but still aren't a one glove solution for ice climbing. But, as long as they're easy to don and doff, they'll be easy to swap with a pair of mittens or warmer belay gloves. And they're small size lets them sit in jacket pockets and stay warm without getting too bulky.
Finally, I like how much leather these gloves feature. The wrap-around in the thumb area gives me confidence that I can give these gloves another review a season or two from now without having to complain about blow fingers. I expect their durability to be demonstrated over the next few seasons.

wanted a durable, mobile glove to wear for approaches and ascents that gave me access to pack, buckles, bindings without removing, but not too warm. great grip and feel.
checked out the Warrant glove also because my fingers get nippy, but its a really sweet glove, just a little much.

Crux Pitch Sending Glove

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

OR made huge changes to this glove over the years based on athlete performance and feedback to bring you a polished product. I use this glove as a the go-to crux pitch glove in quiver with the Warrant and Alpine Alibi

This glove is perfect for working hard mixed and steep ice lines at the ice crag and climbing alpine rock on cold days.

We also found this glove great on the big alpine routes, tucked away dry for the crux pitches. We used this on the first ascent of Voyager Peak in the Alaska Range and it was great for the M6 cruxes that would have been more difficult with a less streamline glove.

Now this is Dad's sports car, so treat it like one. If you do a bunch of rapping on this glove it will not last as long.

Check it out. And this glove is just getting better.

Crux Pitch Sending Glove

Voyager Peak Alaska Expedition

Posted on

On May 23rd at 8:30pm we left our tent and skis at 7500ft on the NW fork of the Lacuna for the summit of unclimbed peak 12,213. The climbing on the lower buttress was several pitches of excellent steep mixed climbing with M6 cruxes on good rock and but faceted snow. The ridge narrowed to a technical gendarme laden and rather narrow ridge with unstable and precariously balanced snow mushrooms . The exposure, position and good rock provided some epic climbing.

Huge Upgrade

These are such an upgrade over my heavy gloves and or my liners for ice climbing. Your hands will definitely get cold at times in these things, but they grip so well. I just always have a pair of heavy gloves for belaying tucked in my shell or clipped to the back of my harness and switch to those when I finish a pitch.

Nice Glove.

Nice glove. I returned them as the large was a bit short in the finger and my hand measures 8.25'.

I will reorder these in a size XL if i can find them. Very light weight and durable glove. Wont keep you warm unless you are really moving unless it is warm enough to go with no gloves.
