12 Point crampons for difficult mountain routes. These crampons excel on steep snow and ice, in couloirs, gullies and mixed terrain. The T shaped forged front points have a thin profile and teeth for additional security on ice and snow. The secondary points, directly under the toes, are angled forward and notched for greater holding power on hard, steep ground. The Sarken comes complete with highly durable anti balling plates Available with sideLock or SpriLock weight (each)- 425g

   Petzl Charlet Sarken Reviews

  Reviewed by Roger K (London/Chamonix) on 2006-04-10:
General comments: These crampons are great. Where do I start? The pair I own have front posts instead of a toe bail and the Spirlock heal fitting. This means you place your heal in first connecting with the metal bail and then your toe is held in place by a plastic toe bail and strap. I purchased these when feeling flush as Scottish crampons to use on old boots with a worn toe welt. They came complete with anti- bailing plates which were subsequently replaced by Petzl Charlet ( I think the original ones were too hard and slippy proving dangerous when walking across rocks). First impressions are of a light crampon, which is very easy to fit onto your boot. I have had to adjust the length a couple of times to prevent the toe from moving between the front posts. Climbing wise these feel very precise and, although dual points, are very sensitive on steep ice. The dual forged front points provide a secure platform on both rock and snow. The Spirlock and plastic toe bail attachment does not enable such a tight fit as step in binding systems however the lack of a rear heal adjuster feels much less cumbersome. In summary, for intermediate to advanced climbers wanting a reliable, simple, lightweight crampon for Scottish or alpine use on all but the steepest terrain, the Petzl Charlet Sarken is a recommended choice.

Pros: Light weight. Don't bail up with snow. Easy to adjust. Great fro old boots with worn toe welts. Simple attachment to boots. Sensitive fronts points.

Cons: Excellent on all but the steepest terrain or very hard ice.
