Awesome crampons! Only problem - and it is a real problem - when I used my Scarpa Charmox Size 46 with it, no problem, it'll fit. when I used my Scarpa Inverno double boots size 13 with it, it will not fit. I was at Mt. Rainier (Ashford, WA) and I had to run to Whittaker Mountaineering Store to buy the long extended bar, and even with the long bar, it barely fits. Size 13 double boots is not extremely large, so becareful guys.
The crampons work no problem.

I still love lighter crampons for skiing and approaches, but when rock and ice mix or long sections of ice appear on alpine routes, these are a good choice. Very durable, strong attachment, and decent price. I don't love frontpointing in them but they do the job just fine, and if you keep a pair of extended bars around they make a good no-fuss loaner pon. Plus the G12s hold their value better than most other crampons, so you can always upgrade with not too much loss.

These were my first pair of crampons, got them many years ago in the "new classic" style, strapped them to a pair of leather hiking boots and they were good to go. Did some winter mountaineering, climbed Shasta in them, and eventually had them out on WI2-3 ice. Great for all of these. Mine came with the anti-balling plates, and I never had any issues with snow building up. Easy to adjust, minimal maintenance. Perfect for what they are designed for.

Im a big fan of Grivel products. Their crampons are next to none as far as I am concerned. The G12 is no exception. The points are well angled well designed to last for a long time. I have ascended everything from vertical to gradual icy slopes with these and they haven't let me down, the cramp o matic design is great and very secure. These are a must have in just about every winter alpenists gear bag.

This is not the best vertical crampon on the market but it is a pretty solid universal crampon. With 12 points you are guaranteed some traction at almost any angle. I use these when i am doing a lot of mixed mountaineering, never anything vertical, for that I use BD Cyborg's, Grivel Rambo's or Grivel 14. I like these a lot and usually bring these on gen mt. trips.

I've used those crampons with my koflach degree boots and they stay solidly in place. I've used them mainly on Rainier and Baker, and they've done the job. They are pretty solid, walking on rocks and ice. My only dissapointment is the top lever part in front will break, it seems pretty flimsy.

So far I've only had them on some gradual/easy routes in the sierras, but so far i really like them...
definitely the easiest 12 point crampon ive used for simple snow/glacier travel, but also worked well for more vertical mixed far a nice compromise

These are awesome! I got them with the new matic binding system, and they work flawlessly! Easily adjustable!
