I use this great quality mountaineering boot for ice climbing. It fits my narrow, high arched foot.
- Great tread
- Fits narrow foot
- Decent colour
- Strong shank
- Need toe warmers
- Tricky to navigate through rocky terrain
I used this boot for all my ice climbs last winter. I wanted a tight fit from toe to heel as I don't like the feeling of my foot slipping back in my boot on a lead. I wore them dawn to dark for 30 climbs. They were great for long approaches, even in snowshoes. Very few blisters on break-in thanks to duct tape. My feet did not move when climbing and they are waterproof.
Because leather is so darned cold and it takes only a little snow to start a foot freeze, I used toe warmers EVERY time.
I'll be using these until they fall apart.
