Will these bindings work with the BD Quadrant boots? I'm unfamiliar with the "ISO 9523 certification standard" and if the Quadrant's fit this designation. I'm currently trying to decide between these or the Marker Baron 13 EPF... Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

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?
