I wonder if anyone has any good tips on what crampons fit for leather telemark boots.

The boots we have for nordic skiing have this front welt so you can use them in a traditional 3 pin binding. Really great skiīs for accessing easier peaks that have longish approaches. However sometimes the summits of the peaks in the Jotunheim have icy ridges occasionally require crampons. My G12 and G14 are not suitable. G12 donīt fit, G14 fit but are designed for rigid boots.

Any tips?

In reply to Jamie Simpson: the ones to get hold off are the old grivel 2 fs which happily have a pivot point just below the ball of your foot, not amazing performance but good enough in my limited experience of using them.

may take a bit of finding but worth it!
