I am looking at getting into ice climbing this winter. I currently own the Lowa Cevedale GTX boots, they have a nice stiff sole, and a crampon compatible heel, but no toe welt. I have the black diamond sabertooth clip crampons, lock on heel, strap to front. While I know this is not the ideal set up, will this work for entry level ice climbing? I don't have the money for new boots/crampons this winter. They feel quite secure, however I realize that might change when I am kicking hard.

Love some input....thanks

A lot of top climbers rock the front strap in the mountains. Like Colin Haley and Steve House.
