/ Suggest me a crampon!
Not sure what crampons to buy, looking for something that will last and suitable for low grade ice gullys. Any suggestions or advice?
Grivel Airtechs are excellent for hill-walking, glacier walking, scrambling and mid-grade mixed climbing. The Grivel G12's are a good all round crampon for everything apart from steep continental style water ice.
Probably obvious but avoid specialised lightweight alloy crampons on hard ice and rock, if you want them to last!

I would suggest either Petzl Sarken or Lynx. With either of these two you would be very well equiped, if you choose to climb more technical stuff latter on as you progress.
