/ The winter climbing season is now over...
The reason my winter is over? My trusty 20+ year old Asolo plastic boots decided today was the day to disintegrate. This added some interest.
Still, can't grumble - I've certainly had my share of fun with these boots, and I bought them in a sale.
New boots required for next winter, time to start saving my pennies. on the bright side, I might even improve my footwork!
Old plastics do tend to be prone to disintegration unfortunately :(
my winter season is over because I have goosed my ankle ..much more of this "excellent nic " stuff and I might be willing to sell the lot at a very cut down just get it out of my sight kinda price.
Sorry to hear about the ankle, hope no lasting damage done.
The dead boots were a size 7, although I think they were a little bit too big - still, a bargain was a bargain.
I think I'll get my next pair fitted, can't say I'm looking forward to navigating through the B3 sea of boots out there.
