Topic - Alaska climbing in ski boots

Will_he_fall - on 15 Mar 2013
Hi all,

just wondering if people have any experience of climbing in the central alaska range in ski touring boots. I use my boots (Scarpa Maestrales)in the Alps in the winter/spring and find them to be warm enough, but wonder if they will be warm enough for climbing lower altitude north facing routes (e.g. mini moonflower buttress etc.) in May. Chatted to a guy who climbed in his in the Ruth gorge on ice routes, seemed to get on fine with them. Maybe ski boots combined with overboots- anyone got experience of using this set-up?

Cheers,

Will
