The Grivel G14 are excellent modular all-rounder crampons with bi / mono point vertical front points. Forged points penetrate hard ice better, with less vibration. They can also be replaced when they wear out. In mono-point format they are excellent for mixed climbing as the vertical single point sits well in thin cracks. The G14 crampon are delivered with the Antibott plates, which are essential for safety especially in wet-snow conditions.

Grivel Binding systems available
There are two binding systems available:
Newmatic: Semi-step in with Grivel's excellent plastic toe cap. These are simple to put on and there is a tiny bit more margin for error than with the Crampomatic, thus they can be used on slightly more flexible boots.
Crampomatic: Full step-in with wire front bale. Quick to put on in a blizzard but you do have to get them on just right - rigid boots only. They are the most rigid option so ideal for more technical routes.
