      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

crampons for tele boots

Recommended Posts

Aside from what you think about tele, can anyone recommend crampons that work well with their tele boots?

I use the old sabertooths and they work well since the toe bar is wide enough to go over the duckbill. Not sure if the newer ones are as wide.

I have a pair of Charlet Moser Blackice which work great. Petzl also makes a replacement bail for their crampons that fits with tele boots. I'd probably just bring your boots to a shop and try some crampons on them and see what fits.

 

Happy tele-ing

A little late to the party I see, but the newer BD Sabertooth will in fact work with tele duck bills. I'm a switch hitter for both tele and AT and my Sabertooths (08 model) work on both boots.

I have used a bunch of different crampons with tele boots. Most work fine, though I didn't like the flexible crampons much. My ten year old Grivel Rambo's work well.
