      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!

Mammut "Grip ex" outsoles

Recommended Posts

I guess Gripex is Mammut's new cheaper house-brand outsole. The boots (Ridge High GTX) are definitely not mountain boots, but were reminiscent in stature to a previous pair of Mammut mountain boots I owned in the past. They were on sale and fit beautifully so I bought a pair.


On hike #2 for these boots, one of the major lugs near the toe box sheared clean off, and almost through the outsole. Upon closer inspection I found that the outsole had numerous places where rubber was shearing away in a weird shattered glass fashion. And one of the large under-toebox cleats was about to shear completely off as well. Dropped 'em back off at Second Ascent for warranty claim.


Just an FYI. :)
