      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!

Boots for Bugs...

Recommended Posts

I have the following choices for a bugs trip the end of July.

Montrail CTC Mid Goretex. Pros, light, climb well. Cons, not too comfortable with strap crampons, harder to kick steps.

Mad Rock Mtns. Better for snow, but heavy and not great for climbing.

Will be sticking to moderate classic routes up to 5.7.

If both of these suck and there is a "Perfect" boot, I may shell out the dough...

Any input would be great.

I was picturing six tiny little boots...


For the weight of the options you mentioned, you might just go with Scarpa Charmoz or the equivalent - they climb snow/moderate rock pert good and are about as versatile as you can get.
