A lightweight, comfortable, technical single-boot that works well on mixed rock and ice pitches and is quite comfortable on approaches while wearing a 3-day pack full of gear. Although they worked well on snow and rock approaches, save them mainly for the warmer seasons and be sure to size them up a bit to be sure you have toe box room.


  • Agile, lightweight, technical climbing boots
  • Decent break-in time
  • Good traction
  • Good lace system


  • A bit narrow and tight for people who have wider feet

One of the best technical climbing boots I've used. My toes got a little cold during a standard late spring climb of Mt. Shasta, but that is partly my fault as I didn't size up like I normally do. Found the boots used but in like new condition in a size 11 1/2...normally I would have bought them in size 12.

I use them in the warmer seasons for more technical routes where I need to pin-point my feet on narrow routes or climbs that involve more rock climbing over snow and ice climbing.
