These waterfall and mixed climbing crampons offer an arsenal of configurations. Vertical rail construction is up front. Change from mono to dual and/or symmetrical to offset front points. The main teeth hang out where you can spot their placements. Micropoints under the ball of foot allow for stability on nubbins. The three-dimensional front point construction provides strength and anti-shearing. Use with front and rear welted plastic or rigid leather boots only. Various front point configurations. Vertically-oriented front section for strength where you need it. Semi-rigid design adds some flex. Splayed secondary points for stability and spotting placements underfoot. Forward and downward secondary points. Safety keeper in case rail breaks.

Performed excellant on vertical ice.. and w/front points adjustable you can choose your poison. Like any crampon ball up is typical but w/anti balling plates repairable. Solid sticks and stable placements

I love these crampons and from the half dozen I tried, these were my favorite in terms of feel and security. Only beef is that I can't add a heel spur, but hey climbing "bareback" seems to be the ethical direction anyways. I didn't try the BD Bionic or the G14s, but from talking to my climbing buddies, they feel that they're all about the same. I got these super cheap during a summer sale, with the anti-balling plates tossed in for free, so price wasn't a factor. I would probably have gone for the BD bionics otherwise.

Update after 5 years:
I still like these crampons and have used them for everything in the mountains imaginable in the last 5 years. I've used them for summer alpine approaches (too heavy for that really, but didn't feel like buying a second pair of crampons), heady steep ice, alpine routes, and mixed. I've climed on mono-points for the last 4 years, and I like the assymetric configuration for everything except alpine. Two horizontal frontpoints seems a lot more secure feeling, especially in Neve.

They ar heavy though, and I'm now changing the rating to a three. Since I started ice climbing 6 years ago, everything has gotten a lot lighter, and crampons are now exeption. Next ice season I will be rocking a set of Petzl's Dart crampons, which climb exactly the same way that the M10s do in mono-point configuration, and cost the same to replace the points! I may not be using the side-lock closure system that has been popular, will let you know after a couple years of abuse...

These are pretty nice crampons. The ability to shift your front point(s) around is nice.
Only complaint is the front section: it balls up really bad. The anti-balling thing should help that a lot.

I love these crampons. They ball up a bit, but which crampon doesn't? The anit-balling plates can help to minimize this, but take them off if you'll be encountering any mixed ground as they're not that durable. Would like to have a heel spur attachment. Otherwise would've given it a 5! They climb like a dream in dual or mono point setup.

Overall good crampons and versatile... BUT, lacking newer improvements like heal spure. I think, for the price, DMM Terminator are a better choice. Especially if you have semi-rigid boots.

3.5 would have been my rating...
