Mad Rock Mountaineering Boots in The Gear Critic Posted July 26, 2007 Anyone know anything about either of the mad rock mountaineering boots? How do they compare to sportiva trangos or glaciers, or other non-plastic boots. I was looking at them in a shop and the worker said that they were great shoes and he uses them for ice climbing, and glacier slogs. They are pretty cheap ($200). So that just makes me wonder about their quality. Also before going to the shop I didn't know Mad Rock even made mountaineering boots. I currently use glaciers, and am looking to upgrade a little. I need a full shank and front bail, which the Mad Rocks have. So that is why I am curious about their quality. any thoughts?
