Crampons
Dart 2015
DART crampons are ideal for extreme mixed and ice climbing. The mono-point is designed to displace less ice and make for precise placements on micro-edges. The third row of points is angled towards the rear for hooking in steep terrain or around ice columns. Ultra-light.

Hi Jean, Just like cutting rope and cord, you should use a very hot knife. That way you, when you cut the rope you will melt the ends, sealing the threads together and stop them from fraying. Before you cut your straps though you should consider if you will ever use your crampons whilst wearing ski boots. If you will then you might need the extra length. Hope that helps, Dave
