Topic - Crampon/Boot Compatibility

alexm198 - on 02 Aug 2013
The other day, a friend of mine, on inspection of my crampon/boot setup, offered words to the effect of 'if I was climbing with those front points, I'd want my brown trousers on.'

It's something I'd noticed myself actually - there's absolutely nothing wrong with the boots or 'pons themselves, but the front points are noticeably obscured by the front lug of the boot, perhaps by half a centimetre. Gear in question is Scarpa Mont Blanc GTX + Grivel G14s.

Anyone got any experiences with this? I've read elsewhere that the front lug on the MBs are just unnecessarily...protruding. Would a pair of, say, Petzl Lynx or BD Cyborg be any better?
