Topic - Broken crampons- catastrophic failure

Cameron94 on 03 Feb 2013
Apologies if posted before but it's worth another post imo.

After recommending the black diamond sabretooth to a friend ealier tonight I noticed this post http://coldthistle.blogspot.co.uk/2012/02/it-is-dead-horse-more-on-stainless.html on Dane's blog about BD stainless crampons shearing at the frame just behind the front points. There are several cases at least 5 that I now know of where this has happened. Follow the links at the bottom of his post for first hand reports of failure.

Always worth checking your gear before you go, even more so with stainless crampons it would appear!
