Justin P.wrote a review of Scarpa Charmoz GTX Boot - Men's on May 11, 2009
I love these boots for warmer weather alpine climbing. I used them in the Cascades last summer, and they don't have too much wear. They were comfortable for the hike, and I trusted them enough to climb up to 5.5 sections. They don't have a ton of insulation, so I wouldn't use them on early season climbing, especially with very firm snow. They do work well with strap crampons, but they won't kick steps as well as a plastic boot. They are a great lightweight boot, and I have had to climb short sections of 75-80 degree ice with them. I wouldn't use them for more sustained steep sections though. The edging is great. I have an average to slightly wide forefoot, and a narrower heel, and they fit very well.
