Who would of thought it? Yellow isn’t a tactical colour! This poses a small problem for Grivel who use yellow on the majority of their products and specifically on the balling plates and straps for their crampons. Thankfully this has been an easy problem to fix and they have produced all black versions of their key crampons including the G12. This is the primary crampon used by UK specialist mountain troops.
Designed for use with a B2/B3 boot, like the La Sportiva Karakorum or Scarpa Manta Pro, the G12 is a 12-point crampon designed for general mountaineering, glaciers or easy ice. The four points that are perpendicular to the crampon rails, prevent shearing in soft snow and improve security while descending (facing outward). The crampons are fully adjustable by hand, without tools. G12 is easily folded for transportation. The crampon comes with a variety of attachment options. This can either be classic or use a new-matic system which provides fast easy on and off for moving quickly across mixed terrain.
The G12 is complemented by an all black Monte Rosa 10 point crampon to be used by normal mountain troops. This is a great quality walking crampon designed to work with a B1 rated boot.
