/ Petzl Dartwin or Simond Vampire crampon, opinions/experiences?
Is a beginner going to notice much, if any, difference between the Dartwin, which I have climbed on, and the Vampire?
Has anyone climbed on both?
After how many days could I expect the Dartwin front section/Vampire points to require replacing?
Can anybody advise if/how well the Vampire Speed fit Nepal EVOís?
It is worth noting that I'm too eager to wait for the Lynx in September.
Also please remember that eagerness does not always equal safeness. You might find cham north faces a little trickier than rjukan WI4 if you have been climbing for a year.
Can't comment on boot fit, either get down decathalon with your boots or buy online and return if they don't fit.
I would have thought you'd have the best selection out in Chamonix, but if you won't be told to wait...
