/ Crampon compatibility question.
I have my climbing setup of G14's with my B3 boot.
Going to be doing more plain walking with the missus and have got some BD contacts at a good second hand price. Considering getting some La Sportiva Trango S Evo to go with them but am concerned they may be too flexible?
Anyone use this combo or thoughts?
Ive had them for years walking, scrsmbling, winter, climbed grade ll's in trangos with g12 step ins until I got some nepals. Never had any problems with flexibility tho the curve of the sole does mean the toe sits slightly off the crampon but theywill be fine for walking and on steep snow and I find mine uber comfy
I'm hoping on getting some and pairing it with a pair of G12's for things like the frendo which has 80 degree sections of ice! Would be fine up to III I reckon with the right crampon.
My climbing partner used G14s with his Trango Evos. The combination worked okay until two-thirds of the way up Orion Direct...
I love my Trango S boots, dunno if I'd want to do much climbing in them
Maybe Grade 2/3 at a push.I'd wait for the New Trango Cube boots this summer.
Cheers. Just looking at using them for winter walking. Climbing, my boots and crampon choice is different.
