The Petzl Dart Crampons. 

I use a mono-point crampon for dry-tooling in Ouray but need a solid dual point in high-alpine couloirs. With the Petzl Dart, I got all this in a light (29 oz per unit, with Antisnow plate), modular crampon that allows you to change between dual-point, offset dual-point, or mono-point (short or long) using a built-in wrench, which took 3–4 minutes in the field. During my trip up Colorado’s Dragontail Couloir, the Antisnow plate was a dream, and the dual points were locked in when I had to make a few moves over exposed rock. The Leverlock Fil binding system was a tight fit on my boot as well, making me confident on any terrain. MSRP: $250
