Topic - New straps on [very] old crampons

sarahjk - on 25 Nov 2012
I have some very old CAMP crampons, from the 80s, which I would like to use for a bit of 'mild' winter/Scottish hiking, or at least to carry if conditions demand while out hiking.

Definately NO front pointing or anything silly like that. I used them when hiking and for a little climbing way back at Uni and have lived in warmer climes since.

Being rather impoverished I would like to continue using them rather than spend 100+ on new crampons. I would like to replace the straps as the old ones are, well, old ! Just seems to make sense, they are neoprene/strapping apparently.

I have looked through the on-line selection that Needle Sports has, seems to be the best selection, but nothing totally compatible.

Does anyone know of anywhere else that sells spares for 'antique' gear ? Or have any suggestions ? I am thinking of just getting the Grivel straps and weaving them through the loops on crampons.
