The Ascent is a lightweight steel crampon for mountaineering. It uses a minimalist design to reduce weight without compromising performance. The compact frame is particularly rigid and the points are positioned for aggressive traction and maximum stability. Universal bindings are compatible with nearly any kind of boot or shoe. Binding parts are interchangeable between Auto/Semi-Auto/Universal (sold separately). The fit can be optimized with the micro-adjustable flexible linking bar. Dynamic anti-balling plates prevent snow build-up underfoot.
