Gear Review: Grivel G10 Crampon

Zack McGill, a guide for Outward Bound, recently had a chance to review the Grivel G10 crampon while guiding teams over some Alaskan glaciers. The G10 is one of Grivel's classic crampons that is designed for all around mountaineering. The crampons are fully adjustable, making them great for use by guide services, and feature Grivel's patented active anti-balling system to shed snow and ice from the bottom of the foot.

In his review, Zack says "they performed well on everything from dry glacier, frozen sun-cupped snow, and the mashed potatoes of the afternoon sun." He later adds "The anti-balling plates were clutch and one of the best features on the G10. They shrugged off unwanted snow so well that I didn’t even notice the struggle bus others were boarding until people were yelling for me to stop so they could angrily whack at their heels with their ice axes."
