Object Detail


A pair of ten point metal crampons which are designed to fit to the base of climbing boots. They are roughly shoe shaped with ten metal points directed downwards and are hinged in the middle via a looped strip of metal. Six metal rings are attached to the top of each crampon . There is a "C" shaped piece of metal at the heel. The manufacturer's name is impressed at top end in a circular shape but this is indecipherable.
