Re: Campbell's even crazier than a MANIAC? (archeopteryx climbing)

Setting aside true arboreality for the moment - how well would they be have been able to use their claws as crampons for ascending trunks, rocks, whatever?

Don't crampons work side-to-side? Sickle claws worked top-down and probably had a cutting edge. They were not round in cross-section.
