Fantastic in most every way
5 5

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

The concept behind this book is amazing: still sole (but not too stiff), durable leather uppers with light insulation and a sock-like, form fitting, somewhat flexible ankle. Add to this roller hardware and a built-in gaiter and you've got a fantastic, light and COMFY alpine boot. It walks well, front points even better and still feels sensitive on rock.

The fit seems typical for Scarpa: a little wider in the forefoot and medium in the heel. In the past I've had Scarpa mountain boots stretched in the width but these were great out of the box.

How do they compare to the Triolet? I own both so I'd say if you're spending more time on snow/ice/cold go with the Mont Blanc. If more time on rock (with some snow, of course) then the Triolet.

Having both, I sized the Triolets a little smaller for a close fit, but my feet get cold if I'm standing in snow all day. The Mont Blancs are sized for a thicker sock and the warmth didn't disappoint on early spring ice climbs. The Mont Blanc is a little stiffer, though the Triolet still climbs ice well for a light boot.
