Hello - I am hiking Mt Rainier in a few weeks (early Aug) and am hoping to use these boots... I've had them for only 2 years, and they're in good shape. I believe they are crampon accessible, but wonder if they'll hold up to the 4 day glacier hike...??? Thanks!

You'll need 4 season mountaineering boots for Rainier. The Kailash boots are nice and warm, but not glacier warm. If you want to buy some, you'll need something like the Scarpa Mont Blanc, which my wife loves. Or you can some boots from one of the guide shops at the base of Rainier.
