I'm new to mountaineering and was wondering which of these two boots would be better for a 10,000 to 14,000 foot summit in the Colorado Rockies:
1.) Scarpa Alpha boots - made in 2004 - mildly used - $50
2.) Salomon Super Mountain 9 boots - made around 2000 - mildly used - $75
Both are size 12's, which is what my keen hiking boot size is.
Thanks for your help,
