Black Diamond Serac Crampons

Guide Pick™: Melissa Arnot



A lightweight, 12-point crampon built for the variable, moderate terrain of classic mountaineering routes. Horizontal frontpoints provide secure bite in icy steps, while the serrated secondary points add more stability than the Black Diamond Sabretooth in steep snow and neve. The Serac's light and durable stainless steel design won't rust, resists snow balling and is free from toxic coatings that wear off in the mountains.

I used these on Mt. Adams and in the Catskills this past winter in conjunction with a pair of GARMONT Men's Momentum Snow GTX Winter Boots and had no issues (I have the universal strap on type). I was wearing a size 11 and the regular bar was long enough. I haven't used them extensively but I liked they the way they peformed.

I have rented these crampons on past climbs and finally decided to buy a pair. I've found that once they are on, I don't have to be readjusting them during the climb.
