    One crampon to rule them all.

    Petzl designed the Sarken Crampon for those who crave versatility when heading into variable, mixed terrain. This 12-point crampon features T-shaped front points for easy penetration on hard ice, and structural reinforcements on both sides of the frame to create a stable platform. The four rear teeth give you stability while descending down icy slopes, and lateral points give you grip while traversing.

    The Sarken’s linking bar can be set for flexible or semi-rigid to adapt to different environments and boot flexibilities. Boots larger than size 46 require the large linking bar (sold separately). The Sarken also features Petzl's Leverlock universal bindings, allowing them to be worn with any hiking or mountaineering boot with a rear welt.

    Love these Crampons! So Versatile !

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Having had a solid month of intense days in these crampons, I feel confident that I can recommend to you guys that these things rule! From steep ascents in the Argentiere of Chamonix, to more mellow snow climbs in the northern Fjords of the Lyngen Alps, this crampon is your perfect travel companion.

    Not sure exactly what kind of terrain you'll be skiing and climbing in? Bringing a couple different types of boots? Weight-conscious? Want to be flexible? Need something that works on both ice and in rocky terrain? Here it is. They do it all.

    My impressions are that these crampons far exceed others on the market, in terms of weight, they're on the lighter side for crampons that also claim the rigidity and durability that they offer. The aggressive nature of the T-Shaped front points allow them to work especially well on ice and in hard snow. A huge selling point! While the anti-balling plats successfully keep snow off the bottom of your feet, you'll be more effortlessly climbing your favorite steep couloir or comfortable you'll have secure steps the next time you're walking on that steep ridge line. Well worth the added weight. I particularly love how easy I can take these crampons on and off. There is nothing worse than a steep transition from skins to crampons where you're struggling to get your foot into the pon, or get them off so you can click into your skis on a steep pitch. They are truly exceptional. The snug fit works particularly well with my Dynafit boots, and I find them easy to adjust. Very confidence inspiring!

    I have noticed they tend to rust, so make sure to dry your pair out after each use.

    Awesome All Around Crampon

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I used these crampons in the summer season in the North Cascades and in British Colombia. These handled everything from general mountaineering up Mt. Baker and Shuksan and anything thrown at them requiring those sections of ice or even some rock scrambling. All around a great alpine crampon and do their job very well, excited to see what next season in these bad boys holds!

    12 Points On

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm always interested in trying new crampons and the Sarkens did not disappoint. For me, anti-balling plates are a must, which the Sarkens have and they work quite well. Although slightly on the heavier side for some 12 point crampons, it really isn't that noticeable of a difference.

    Overall, they work really well are certainly worth taking a look at if you need a solid mountaineering crampon that will work with a boot with a heel welt and no toe welt.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love these crampons. I've been using these for splitboard mountaineering purposes. The heel welt on the back combined with the rubberized toe piece on the front creates a super secure connection to my snowboard boot. It's a great crampon whether your main application is booting up a couloir, glacier travel or ice climbing. I'd highly recommend these crampons to anyone who is the market. Unless of course you have 4-wheel drive & dog claws, like my main adventure partner, Split.

    Unanswered Question

    do these bindings come with the attachments for boots with front welts and the attachment for those without front welts (like the petzyl lynx crampons do)?
