A “BSA” tour, maybe “OSA” in the final part, from Forca Rossa, to Croda di Forca Rossa (40-45°). Nice weather and perfect snow. Had fun! Followed planetmountain.com’s report (HERE), detailed and complete.
In this short video I show the procedure to reduce the lenght of the regulation bar on Grivel crampons, to fit the crampon to small boots. You just need to remove the bar, turn it 180° and replace it on the other crampon (in order to maintain crampon both right and left). The function of the regulation spring is to hold the front section in place, but it can be removed (after taking off the regulation bar) and replaced with a screw and bolt: this gives you an extra two sizes.
In this post I publish some pictures of the Grivel G12 crampons (New Classic binding) perfectly fitting on a Burton Ruler snowboard boot (video review of the boot HERE). Nice job for Burton’s team: Shrinkage™ reduces the boot’s overall footprint one full size, hoping we won’t see anymore those enormous ships we saw in last 10 years.
For those people who asked me, this is the video of a BSA tour I made with this combination of crampons and snowboard boots (the full review of the tour in my blog is HERE):
