Crampon fitting tips from Cold Thistle

I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again.  I really enjoy Dane Burns' blog, Cold Thistle.  If you like ice and alpine climbing, check it out.  He has a lot of experience, good advice, good opinions (that I agree with about 98% of the time), great gear reviews and comparisons, etc.

Today I noticed a post of his about crampon fit, which reminded me of a different post of his that I'd read last year about fitting crampons.  It's an important concept.  Worst thing I can imagine is being half way up a route and have your crampon fall off.  If you ever climb in crampons, check out this post, it's worth your time.
