I purchased these boots on ebay a while back from a seller who had been given them as part of a sponsored expedition – he already had a pair of high altitude boots so was selling for extra cash. At the time I had aspirations of climbing in the greater ranges so bought them. Sadly these dreams will have to wait and I am currently confined to climbing in the Alps and Scotland for which I have my trusty Nepal Evos. I have come to the realisation that these boots could really do with a good home instead of sitting in a wardrobe surplus to requirements so I am reluctantly selling.
