I'm in the middle of making the switch to hard boots and am curious as to what guys are doing for crampons when skinning on terrain that require them? I have Mr Chomps that I use with the soft boot set up but once I mount the dynafit toe pieces, then what?

Use B and D ski gear splitboard crampons with Dynafit toe pieces.

Guys
The only issue is when you use the climbing bars.
I have made a few custom crampons but still are trying to perfect the crampon that works with dual climbing bar setups.
This is also affected by the shape of the boot sole.
No sure there is a product out there that fixes these issues.

For dual-height crampon use B and D a crampon lock
