Seen these spikes were recommended by many others so gave them a go!
First time using them I went up to Fanthams peak on Mt Taranaki and if you have climbed this you will know it’s very steep, I was a tad concerned that the 10 mm spikes wouldn’t give me enough purchase in the steep icy sloop and was thinking I will need crampons but they got me up and back down without any slip. I would be confident in wearing them to the summit and back down. Very light weight and don’t roll round under foot.
This was my experience with the micro spikes, I’m not suggesting you buy these over crampons if you intend on taking on challenging hikes But they are definitely worth every penny
These microspikes were a godsend during my Easter Weekend ascent of Mt Taranaki. They handled the conditions very well, and are incredibly resilient for such an economic price. Had a few envious looks over what a good idea they were/are, too. Great on scree, rock, and ice. Can't recommend these enough.
