What To Look For When Buying Crampons For Ice Climbing
Not all crampons for ice climbing are created equal. Fortunately, we’re going to provide a few quick tips to help you pick the right pair for you. Start by considering your activity: Will you be climbing waterfall ice or mixed terrain? Will you be casually walking in the snow? Will you be embarking on a technical mountaineering trip? The activity you do will affect your ideal pair.
- Materials: steel tends to be the premier choice for all activities. But, for casual snow walking, aluminum works too.
- Frontpoint type: For snow walking or general/technical mountaineering a fixed horizontal front point is ideal. But for waterfall ice and mixed climbing, go with a modular vertical.
- Rigidity: For just about every type of climbing, you’ll want a semi-rigid construction to allow the ultimate stability. For general snow walking, you can stick with a flexible construction.
- Number of points: The more points you have, the better suited you are for intensive routes. General snow walking is fine with as few as 8-10, while intense ice climbing requires a minimum of 14 points.
- Binding type: basic strap-on bindings are fine for snow walking - but if you’re doing something more technical or intense, you may want hybrid or step-in bindings.
