Are these boots suitable for heavy loads, extended backpacking, and high altitude 3 season climbing/scrambling? I'm planning a two week trip to do Maroon Bells and a various other Co 14ers in a few months and need to upgrade from the Vasque Bitteroot.
If you like a sturdy boot for extended backpacking, this is probably the best youll get. The nice thing about salomon is that even when it comes to their boots, they are light!! Now as far as high altitude, if you are looking for warmth...these won't have much. Really depends on the type of temps you are going to be in. Definitely a solid boot though!
