Tried before I bought

I borrowed my friend's Contact Crampons for a five day mountaineering trip in the north cascades. These performed perfectly for both walking across glaciers and climbing steep snow pitches. I prefer a less technical boot and I believe these work better than converting a technical crampon to regular boot.

Lightweight steel!!

I've been using al crampons for years (even in situations where steel would be preferable) just because of the weight, but these are BARELY any heavier and obviously much more robust! I've now sold my aluminium crampons and converted to steel full-time :)

Sick crampons

Fit my deeluxe explorer snowboard boots very well, I only regret I didn’t order an axe too!

Beautiful, well made

These were top reviewed and while very nice we didn't keep them and opted for a 12 point crampon

All black diamond gear is 5 stars

I only purchase BD gear because the, testing, quality, and function are perfect for being outside in any occasion. These are great crampons and will be used to summit Mt Adams and Rainer in the near future.

So versatile!

I have used this version of crampons multiple times with beginners. They are easy to use, efficient and they provide a great sense of security.

Good with snowboarding boots

Have not tried them yet in the mountain, but fits pretty well inside - excited to take them out! Recommend getting the bag to store them..

Well made and easy to use. Hiking the high peaks of the Adirondacks requires dependable gear. I use Black Diamond poles and crampons. The quality is impressive and the price is right. Thank you Black Diamond for supporting veterans!
