Topic - C2 or C3 crampons for la Sportive Nepal evo's

J.B.R.Hartley - on 20 Dec 2012
I have bought La sportiva Nepal evo gtx's boots for Winter mountaineering in scotland this winter and some ice climbing and I keep getting mixed advice on what crampon to buy.

One piece of advice is to buy a C3 crampon regardless that I will be mountaineering as the boot are a very rigid boot regardless hence there wouldnt be much point in having a more flexible C2 crampon youi may as where a c3 that can do everything. But I worry they would be too rigid and become agony.

Another piece of advice is to get an all rounder C2 crampon that can do both mountaineering, steep ice, and ice climbing.

the advice I have been given is from the common shop assistants in such places as Ellis Bringham, Snow and Rock etc.

Any help would be great.

Merry Christmas
