I'm trying to decide which boot to use on Aconcagua for a couple trips this winter. I currently own a pair or Scarpa Omegas that I've only used a few times for vertical ice climbing. I had the liners heat molded. I'm not really sure if the Omegas are the boot for Aconcagua, though, as I'm a little worried my feet will be cold in them. They also seem a bit stiff for the long slogs I'm expecting on Aconslogua...

Last year guiding on Kilimanjaro, I used the La Sportiva Glacier in 44.5. I realize this is a totally different mountain and environment than Aconcagua but I'm concerned about sizing. I normally wear a US 10.5 or 11 and thought the 44.5 Glaciers were a bit too big (not a bad thing on the descent as my toes weren't being too abused).

If I go for something like the Spantik or Baruntse, I'm not sure what size I should order. Any thoughts?

Also, has anyone used the Omega on Aconcagua? How did they perform? Feet stay warm?
