More on boots and crampons...
...thanks for all the info so far.

Hmmmm, the thought of paying £150 for boots I won't use that often apart from a few days in Winter is a bit daunting. Apart from Scarpa Mantas, is there any other boot (preferably one that might appear in TK Maxx!) that might be rigid enough for use with crampons? And might also be suitable for general use? I guess if I gotta spend I gotta spend, but had thought that with the Meindls doing so well over the past 2 years and showing every sign of holding up for another few, that at least the outlay on boots was over.
