One doesn't have to look far to see I advocate ice climbing in ski boots if the climb warrants it. That hasn't always been the case. In fact a few years ago I scoffed at anyone unlucky enough to suffer through that kind of nonsense.
The Dynafit TLT5 and now 6 have changed my attitude an opinion.
I have had several conversations recently with friends, blog readers and my climbing partner on what crampon works the best for the TLT boots. No clue what works on other boots since there aren't any other ski boots I am willing to climb in other than the TLT 5, 6 or full on Dynafit and Scarpa "race" boots.
I like and use all sorts of different crampons for my climbing boots. Generally what fits the boot best gets climbed in. And that depends on the boot sole shape and the crampons security when attached. It has to be rock solid for me to be accepting and confident.
For the few rando boots I am willing to climb in, it also depends on the same solid crampon fit and security. Never know when I might be using the boot-crampon combo with a Grivel Condor or a BD Whippet. Crampons had better be secure if I am intending to leave real tools behind.
My skimo rigs have simply decided by boot fit. I don't care about much of anything else within reason. All of these particular crampons climb well in they specific conditions they were designed for. They may not have been specifically designed for the Dynafit boots but you would be hard pressed to tell otherwise. I've tried literally every crampon easily available in NA market. And for my size 29 boots nothing else even in the ball game for fit and security. Few will even match the performance. None better the fit.
YMMV of course. Just my 2 cents on the subject since I was asked. I buy all my own crampons. No body giving me crampons these days. Grivel never has.
A lwt 10 point skimo crampon, the Grivel, Haute Route..steel front points, aluminum heel. If you really need a crampon, steel is the only real security. Half might just be better than a full steel set up in some situations. I have full aluminum crampons and use them as well. But in many cases the combo of steel and aluminum makes more sense IMO.
Dual vertical front points on the Grivel G22
And my favorite technical crampon ( and seemingly everyone Else's) for the TLT..the Grivel G20.
