My buddy and I are climbing Rainier in...
My buddy and I are climbing Rainier in July. Would these boots be a good choice? I love their weight for the approach; but my fear is that my feet will get cold. According to Summit Post, the average low on the summit in July is 15 degrees. If it is below average, with wind, etc.... am I in trouble? Or is this boot just right?
Awesome choice of time to climb Rainier and this should work if you don't ever have problems with cold feet easily. I've used a similar boot the old LaSportiva Trango GTX and my feet stayed nice a toasty. Did have one time 2 years ago when we were caught by a storm at the summit with high winds and wind chill of 10 below and wished I'd had warmer boots or a good insole. The boots I now have are the Trango Extreme Evo Light GTX and haven't had a problem on any of the PNW glaciers and peaks. http://www.backcountry.com/la-sportiva-trango-extreme-evo-light-gtx-mens They are the Cadillac of all mountaineering boots I've ever owned and worth it!
Enjoy your upcoming attempt!!
Charmoz for lightweight mountain boots
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
The perfect boot where you know you're going to spend significant time in crampons but aren't going to do a ton of front pointing and it's not going to get too cold. They climb rock surprisingly well and are incredibly light weight. The footbed felt a bit flat to me but adding a greet superfeet insole dialed in the fit perfectly. The ankle flexes quite freely so it's easy to use french technique on relatively steep slopes. However, that same flexibility results in tired calves if you're front pointing all day. The fact that this boot doesn't have a full length shaft also reduces its front pointing ability. However, the rockered and more flexible toe means you can walk all day in this boot without issue. I wore it 10 days straight in technical terrain after very little break in and never noticed any discomfort. The use of kevlar reduces weight and durability but mine keep on kickin. It has limitations like anything else but its a great boot if you use it properly!
Scarpa Charmoz pro GTX
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I must say I'm very impressed with this boot.
I already have the Triolet Pro GTX and bought the Charmoz based on the earlier experience.
Straight from the box I took the Charmoz on a 13.5km (8.4 mile) hike in the Australian bush. This was over fire trails and bush tracks (over tree roots and rock).
This is not what these boots are designed for, but believe me, if they can handle that then they're going to be fantastic for what I bought them for, via ferratas in the Dolomites and use on climbs in the European Alps.
I had one hot spot ( same as for the Triolet) but I can get those in well-worn shoes.
This was a very favourable first outing.
Scarpa Gtx Pro boot
I have had these boots for a few months and have been pleased so far. They have a nice balance of comfort and weight to accommodate for long trips. I would recommend them to a friend. A very versatile boot.
