What is the use of crampons?

The crampons are the necessary equipment for winter climbing or high altitude climbing. Used in a very smooth ice or snow on a firm foothold. Winter hiking boots require sufficient hardness to secure the pawls firmly above it. Different winter outdoor sports, the hardness of the hiking boots different requirements. In other words, some ice claws can be very good with the relatively hard hiking boots match; and some with the soft boots with better.

Full-caliber pawls can only be used with hiking boots before and after the card slot. This kind of boots have a strong midsole, so be able to hold the crampons. And tied the use of crampons is relatively wide, you can match any type of boots. The claws of the claw claws are some trouble. Personally think that the front of the card after the most convenient, but the requirements of the boots after the card slot.

Pincer is used for mountain climbing and general ice climbing, suitable for snow and not too hard ice; and before the teeth claws due to strong penetration, particularly good at dealing with the very hard ice, its role is technology Requires high hard ice and mixed routes. In addition to the selection of crampons, the need to pay attention to is the second pair of front teeth position, the more forward, then the greater the role of the next support, the more suitable for the steep ice wall, but walking more cost some effort.
