      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

These AT backcountry/ski mountaineering boots are practically brand new, I bought them last year and skiied in them maybe 6-7 times.  Unfortunately they just don't fit my feet.  Liners have never been molded.  As you can see from photos, liners and soles show no wear.  They're in perfect condition.

Size 26.5 mondo (Men's 8.5)

Cost: $450 (paid $900)

Description: 

"Ski boots that climb like technical alpine boots. Arc'teryx found the sweet spot for ski mountaineers, building a carbon fibre boot that melds ski tech with climbing agility. The upper cuff uses 2 pieces that pivot for an exceptional range of motion, so you can place your crampon points precisely and get lots of skin surface on the snow when a traverse gets technical. In ski mode, the spoiler snugs the upper cuff to prevent the lateral movement that's only useful when climbing. Fully snowproof and highly water resistant, the shells are equipped with a hybrid closure system to distribute pressure and keep you locked in. Procline Support liners are heat mouldable, giving aggressive skiers the drive to climb and conquer couloirs."

These boots provide unbelievable comfort and range of motion while climbing and moving around.  Tech specs:  360° rotating cuff offers 75° of vertical rotation and 23° and 12° of internal and external rotation respectively.  Then lock down tight for the descent.

Other info: 

Cuff is made of stiff, light and durable 30% carbon charged Grilamid.  Spoiler is 60% fiberglass with Grilamid for optimal weight to stiffness ratio.

Hybrid closure system pairs the load-spreading ability of cable systems with an aluminum buckle to secure the tension.

Cam Lock power strap is secure, powerful, and doesn't use abrasive Velcro®, so it won't shred your pants.

Full coverage gaiter keeps snow and water out, thanks to the durable Cordura with PVC coating and laminated TPU reinforcement.

Fully-mouldable Procline Support Liner focuses support and power transfer on the descent while remaining agile on the climb.

Reduced shell length, rockered sole and a crampon optimized toe offer great climbing performance.

Rubber toe cap provides protection and added grip when climbing. Toe and heel welt are compatible with automatic or semi-automatic crampons.

Tech inserts are Dynafit Certified.  Boot is compatible with tech bindings only.

Feel free to call with questions:  206-789-7959.  I'm in Seattle.
