/ crampons for small feet
Apparently Petzl Lynx fit many small boots well.
Remember it's about more than just the length. My gf found thatsabretooths fitted her size 4 boots really snug, but the bail could move around, and so the crampon would fall off in use. Fixed this by switching the bails for those off my G12's.
Gutted for you, as mentioned- you didnt need to cut the bar. I walked into v12 once when a woman was just about to do this to her brand new crampons with a hacksaw. I think the problem is that theres no mention of this technique supplied with the crampons:
But on size 4 it may be an issue that the front and back sections combined total length is still too long, grivel tend to have longer front sections than Petzl charlet, other options are to look are modern super tech crampons with short front sections, such as G20 or dart models, you may still need to be inventive
I've got size 3 feet, but my winter boots are size 37 1/2. Turning the bars on both my G12's and G14's works well but it's probably the limit (bas is all the way down to the back of the crampon. So depending on whether you end up with size 37 or 37 1/2 it may or may not work, but try it out in the shop?
