Can anyone who has done/or led the Glenmore Lodge intro course confirm whether my Asolo B2 will do for the weeks fun?
Will be paired with G12 if that helps.
The email I had from them just said stiffened boots, but no to what stiffness, I took them up Grade 2s last year with Martin Moran and they were fine so would hope to use them again.
Hope you have a great time.
Yeah my friend normally uses B2 and G12 newmatic for winter climbing and leads to around IV,5 mixed and ice. I'm pretty sure its not the boots holding him back.
Pretty sure that you can sign-out boots from the Lodge's stock, and there may not even be a charge for this, but worth calling to check with them.
