    From ice, to rock, and back to ice.

    From the Bugaboos to Huntington Ravine, the Scarpa Phantom Guide is a lightweight alpine climbing boot for all your mountaineering needs. The Phantom has an ErgoFit system that allows you to flex your feet naturally so you can get a better grip on small rock flakes when you're ascending technical terrain.
    • PrimaLoft lightweight insulation and multilayer upper adds warmth when you're hitting the ice
    • Waterproof t-zip and integrated gaiter provide protection from the elements so you can climb hard all day long
    • Synthetic Cordura uppers with a DWR coating provide dryness inside of the t-zip
    • Quick lace system can be tightened or loosened easily with cold fingers or gloves
    • ErgoFit sole allows your foot to flex naturally
    • Midsole construction uses microporous polyurethane to improved shock absorption and durability
    • Tough Vibram TT sole for superior grip and traction on variable alpine terrain
    • Item #SCR0176

    Very Comfortable with No Break in

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 46

    I always see these post from people who just got the boots and next day climb a mountain with no problems. Well today I am that guy. I bought them on a Tuesday and received them Thursday day for my hike up to Camp Muir on Mt. Rainier on Saturday. Other than the 1 hour I wore them Thursday night in my house the first real test was 4500 ft of elevation gain and 7 straight hours of hiking. I only had one small blister on my heel that was the size of an eraser on a pencil.

    I prepared for the worst and was nervous to say the least. I put on my standard duct tape on my heals and wore light Smartwool PHd hiking socks. The feel of the boot was fantastic with the heel cup being the best of all the boots I own. It had more room than the the La Sportivas and less than the Asolo's. I had plenty of room in the toe box and was able to wiggle my toes freely. I did change out the footbed to a custom molded one that I use in all my boots from Road Runner sports.

    Temperature was about 25 degrees and my feet were plenty warm and the built in gaiter worked great. I do recommend lubing the zipper with the lubricant they provide. Makes it much easier to use.

    I were a size 12 running shoe and ordered a size 46. I had another pair of Scarpas and they were 45.5 and I had to much toe bang so I went the next size up and was in luck.

    The only negative that I could find is the laces are very slick and don't stay tied unless I double knot them.

    The money spent was well worth it and I am very happy with them.

    A total winner!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Purchased as my new winter boot for moderate to steep ground. To date they have done 8 climbs and covered a total combined ascent height of about 12,000m. They are warm enough for the New Zealand winter. Fit has been excellent, and no blisters what so ever. Putting them on takes a little practice but the integrated gaiter is an absolute winner. They have a little flex, but this is fine. So far with only use on snow and ice they are showing no wear at all. For many years I climbed in Koflach plastic's, but these are a total revolution in both comfort and weight compared to the past. Absolutely loving my Phantom Guides!!!

    Solid, warm and versatile... GREAT boot!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Fits true-to-size, super warm, dry and comfy. Wore out-of-the-box with no break-in on a 3-day ice climb and it just got better from there. Wore on Elbrus with 40-below overboots, a GREAT combination. Not a substitute for double boots in all situations, but a great, light climbing option in many situations.

    Integrated Gators Rock!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    My wife and I have the Guide and 6000 models and we love them. I sometimes question their durability, if used on rock or scree, but so far they have been great for snow and ice climbs. I have noticed a little stiffness around the ankle and tightness around my lower calf, however, these discomforts faided after breaking the boots in. These were our first boots with integrated gators and I don?t think we will ever go back.

    Scarpa Phantom Guide in Cordiller Blanca

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Used these boots now in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru to do several climbs including Nevado Pisco. They were great both in the morraine as on the ice. Great boots. Warm and with great grip.

    SCarpa Phantom Guide.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I purchased these as my first "real" pair of insulated Mountaineering boots to use Up here in the Northeast(white mtns) as well as an upcoming trip to Rainier this summer.

    -FIt= I wear a size 11.5,12 in sneakers and a 12 in hiking boots and I have a relatively wide forefoot and narrow heel. Just for reference, Asolo boots fit me absolutely perfectly in a size 12 and in a wide version where available. I purchased the Phantoms in a size 12.5 to account for a thick mountaineering sock if needed. For me, there is a good amount of room in the boot without being loose. if I were to get a .5 size smaller, they would be too tight. The heel cup is not as snug as in my old asolo mtneering boot, but is fine. You can really dial in the fit with lacing. The little lacing lock things in the instep are worthless, upon my first use of the boots, lacing them up just before hitting the trail. I broke the tabs as I tightened. I took them off and all is well.

    -Performance= while not my intention, the first time I used them was during my first ice climbing lesson. There was only a short 200m hike to the climb and the boots did feel a tad stiff on the trail, but nothing unexpected. the boots felt solid and there was no lift or erroneous movement as I climbed on vertical ice as mell as some milder ledges. I used them once more ice climbing and they felt even better. I can't attest to how well they hold up to a day on the trail/glacier. But I have no complaints.

    goodluck.

    Backcountry rocks.

      So, at this level of boot, fit is way more important than anything. I learned this through 4 purchased pairs of boots, all through backcountry.com. Started with testing out the Salewa Pro Gaiters that I demoed for an entire day at Ouray Ice Climbing. So, I purchased a pair. Then realized it was too big and purchased a smaller pair (up to 2 boots now). Then, I decided to weigh these against Batura GTX 2.0s (up to 3 boots now). I took all of these on single or double trips. Meanwhile, I found out that the Scarpa Phantoms reportedly had a easier fit for some folks. I had issues with every other boot here. Some kind of foot pain. Finally, after ordering these and returning all the others after good solid tests - these worked on the first trip out. I had my boot. This made me sad because I really like La Sportiva and enjoyed ice climbing in worn in Salewa boots.



      Despite how you feel about which boots you want, find the fit that works. The La Sportivas fit better? Keep them. Scarpas fit better? Keep them.



      My point? It works differently for everyone and fit means everything. I love my Scarpa Phantom Guide boots and am excited to go climb Liberty Ridge using these this June.

      Great fitting and Warm for women

        These boots fit great for a woman. The liner does fit a bit wide. Use an after market footbed and a thicker sock. They keep me nice and toasty during a belay. They tend to get cold if my feet sweat during an approach since they are So warm, so dress appropriately for the weather. They are super comfy on hikes as well.

        Winter technical boot!

          This is a great fitting (narrow and wide feet) warm winter boot. It climbs technical ground very well, is light enough and walks well. Toss up between the new Batura and the Scarpa Guide. The Guide offers a little better support in the ankle but not quite as good of gaiter. Find the one that fits the best and enjoy the cold weather and great climbs!

          Winter technical boot!

          highly recommended

            Great boot. Fits my wider foot nicely.

            How is this boot for hiking? Would it be comfortable to go, say, 10 miles a day hiking into a climb with a pack on my back through snow? I have asked at REI, and they tell me to get a regular winter boot, but to me those don't look sturdy enough to be hiking with 50-70 lbs on my back. Will this one be comfortable for that, and keep my feet warm during active use in temps approaching 0� F?



            Also, I wear a size 13 US Mens, should I get a size 47 in these, or up it to a 48? What is the fit like?

            Best Answer

            For long approaches, I would consider the LS Nepal Evo or Scarpa Mont Blanc. Both are insulated so you'll be fine down to 0 degrees. Also, these boots are synthetic, so the leather boots will have better durability especially on those rocky/rough approaches when you're off snow/ice. in terms of sizing, I buy my mountaineering boots a full size up to accommodate thick mountaineering socks and leave some room for going downhill (to prevent toe jams). I normally wear a 44.5 (size 10.5 normally) but my boots are a 45.5. Hope this helps.

            Looking at either the scarpa phantom guide or Charmoz gtx. I know they are pretty different, but can anyone throw out a summary?

            Just got a pair and I am loving the comfort however...Can anyone speak to the durability of that integrated gaiter? Never having used this style of boot before, I am immediately thinking that this gaiter will not withstand 3 or 4 good talus/scree "descents" i.e., curse, stumble and triple-jump through sharp rocks. The "bottom line" here on the site says "from ice to rock and back to ice" but I am thinking it may be "back in the box and back to the company."

            Used the Phantom 6000, which is the same design as the Guide, on Aconcagua and Denali this year - and it's hard to tell I even used the boots more than for a hike or two. Remarkably durable, IMO. Then again, Aconcagua is mostly a trail (except for summit day) and Denali is mostly snow, but still...

            Does anyone know if the BD Sabretooth with fit these boots without a problem?

            Best Answer

            Sabertooth fits but the fit could be better, The Ultra below is a Sabertooth with a Petzl front bail. Much better fit than the BD front bail on the Scarpa Phantom Series of boots. Petzl crampons are a better match up out of the box.

            What are the differences between the phantom guide, the phantom 6000 and the 8000?

            Best Answer

            Phantom 8000 Is Designed for extended at high Altitude and extreme cold temps IE: Mount Everest $870 retail 1330 grams 1/2 pair size 42. Phantom 6000 is also a double boot it is lower cut than the 8000 but designed for more technical terrain in cold weather situations where you woud need more mobility and sensitivity.. Not as worm as 8000. 1000 grams per 1/2 pair $679. The Phantom Guide is a single boot designed to perform on Ice / technical rock routes .. we see a lot of folks using this boot for everyday Ice climbing not as warm as the above mentioned because it is a single boot and wont dry as fast as it is a single boot but offers more sensitivty demanding technical challenges. 983 Grams per 1/2 pair $525

            Since these boots are single boots, how would you dry them while on a climb where you had to stay over night but had a sleeping bag?
