Monopoint Modification — A subtle but noteworthy upgrade, the Black Diamond Snaggletooth crampons are the first we’ve seen with a horizontal, offset monopoint. A second, smaller horizontal frontpoint is included for switching between snow, mixed terrain, and technical ice on an alpine climb.

The design allows for precise placement on steep terrain and stability for plodding across glaciers and snowy summit ridges. ($210; Sept. 2015)
