Was wondering what you guys/gals suggested for a good crampon. I have a pair of Hillsound Trail crampons but didn't have very good luck with them on my first venture in the steep terrain. I wasn't wearing good mountaineering boots which could have contributed to the fact that my ankles were rolling constantly and caused the rubber that's attached to the chains to break (Luckily Sitka gear has nice twine on the zipper handle that came in good use..LOL). I have recently purchased nice Asolo's that will accept a more rigid semi-auto crampons and wanted to know what your pro's and cons might be and which one's you might suggest. Thanks
