VINTAGE MOUNTAINEERING CRAMPONS.
A pair of early 10 point wrought iron crampons in the design of Oscar Eckenstein (1859 -1921). Eckenstein was a passionate climber and innovator. He developed this type of hinged crampons in 1908 and two years later, with the help of Henry Grivel of Courmayeur on the Italian side of the Mont Blanc, they became commercially available.
Each crampon has a formed steel loop at the rear that fits onto the heel of a boot, also there are 6 metal rings with the original leather bindings and buckles. The name F. ANDENMATTEN (Franz) LIDERS is marked on both crampons.
