Fantastic on ICE!Extremely easy to adjust and very solid once on. Micro adjust of the heal lever makes a tight fight possible on every boot I own. This is definitely a specialist tool, and I am interested to see how long the plastic components last (ABS and micro adjust heal lever). That said, these crampons are rigid, wicked sharp tools that will make any pillar of vertical ice into a vibrating string of support as you send a ridiculous overhanging line. Easy to adjust to mono, though that requires the use of a similarly sharp file. Not a crampon for mountaineering or non-technical use - these are specialized tools for climbing serious ice.

Excellent!Great pair of crampons for ice climbing and also high level alpinism. Interchangeable frontpoints are super-sweet and the stainless steel the black diamond is now using is incredibly durable. It is good for sharpening if you ever had to actually sharpen these! Highly recommended and will be a long time user.
