Black Diamond Contact Crampons

Designed for ice and snow travel, the lightweight Black Diamond Contact crampon is ideal for mountaineers, skiers and hikers. Its stainless steel construction won't rust and avoids environmentally toxic coatings that wear off in the mountains. The compact, 10-point design offers easy walking, while the fast-adjust attachment system accommodates almost any footwear. ABS plates included.

A perfect general mountaineering crampon that will work well not only with mountaineering boots but ski boots and overboots as well.  These crampons have been a stand-by for Whittaker Mountaineering for many years.  They will translate well from Mt. Rainier to other mountaineering pursuits.

This is the best all around, general mountaineering crampon. I've worn these all over the world. These are great for climbers of every level, a simple binding system that works with a wide range of boots and moderately aggressive front point, perfect for glacier walking.

Product seems to be well made of quality materials.

I rented these crampons from RMI when I climbed Rainier (twice) and was impressed both the quality of the materials and workmanship as well as their performance on snow/ice and rock.

Use Situation: Climbing Mt Rainier

Excellent

These crampons stayed tight and center to the front of my boots better then my previous pair. I'm also impressed with the price.

Use Situation: I used them on rock & glacier to summit Mt. Rainier.

I rated these crampons excellent because they are, however, one small detail you should know before you buy...I wear a 12 1/2 mountaineering boot. I had to knotch both sides of my boots in order to make room for the small "side-knubb" on the crampons, at the heal. Appearently this knubb is for lateral movement stabalization of the crampon which is very necessary, it just needs to be 1/4 inch wider on each side to fit the larger sizes.
