The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
Caiman 2 Strap
10-point versatile crampon, designed for glacier hiking and mountaineering.
2.6mm steel structure guarantees excellent weight-to-longevity ratio.
Front points are wide for great stability on snow, and short for sensitivity when mixed climbing.

Strap system designed for all kinds of mountaineering boots. Flexible and easy to use: simply pass the strap through all the metal loops followed by the double-loop buckle. You can't get it wrong!
Comes with fitted antiballing plates and crampon bag. Weight given includes antiballing plates.

The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.
To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.
