    Voile Climbing Bars make backcountry telemark travel a walk in the park.

    Backcountry travel is far easier with Climbing Bars attached to your Voile telemark bindings. When you're traveling up steep terrain, flip up the Climbing Bars to raise your heel and reduce calf fatigue. When it's time to point 'em down hill, just flip the bars flat, peel your skins, and enjoy the fluff.

    Since Becca did not get a satisfactory answer to her question, I'll ask it again:
    How do you determine what size of bars to get? I live in UT, I'm 5'5"...what are the factors that go into choosing the best size of climbing bars?

    I have been wondering the same. I found on the voile website that the short and standard sizes are designed for the 8.5 mm heel pads that are with the 3-pin bindings. The tall (72mm) wires are for the taller 20 and 30 mm risers that come with the hardwire binding models. Beyond that I have heard that smaller boot sizes can complicate things by needing a shorter wire, but I have never heard what qualifies as a smaller boot. hope that helps some and maybe someone else might be able to give more info.

    how do i decide to go for "standard" or...

    how do i decide to go for "standard" or "short"? does my boot size matter? i think my boots are 24.5 or 25thanks, becca

    If you are going to be skinning up steeper terrain, then the tall climbing bail is what you want. If you are skinning up lower angle slopes, then then short bail would be fine. The standard bail is somewhere in between.
    Remember, the reason for climbing bars is to keep your foot level, even though your skis are pointed up. The bails also keep your legs from stretching too much, and wearing you out. The standard bails should be good enough for most terrain, but if I prefer taller bails for the steeper slopes.
    Boot size does not affect compatibility, but since you are a fairly small boot, the tall ones will seem taller than they would for a larger footed person.
