Original Vintage F. Ralling Climbing Crampons
This is an original pair of vintage wrought iron climbing crampons made by the Felix Ralling Hammerwerk company in the village of Fulpmes in the Subai valley in south Tyrol, Austria. They have 10 points and are marked size 44. The leather straps are in excelent shape and the metal is clean.
