Topic - Winter Boot Advice

sheelba - on 01 Feb 2014
Over the last two winters I have been using la Sportiva trango's for winter walking and climbing up to grade III. I'm going up to Scotland in two weeks time and will probably be climbing up to at least grade IV (all following though not leading) and I am worried that my boots might not be up to the job. I didn't experience any real problems last year apart from my feat getting very cold on one especially time consuming belay but am worried this year that my boots are bendier (after a summer in the Alps and a lot of winter walking) and less waterproof than they were.

I've tired on some discounted Scrapa Jorasses which seem to fit well although they don't seem much better insulated and I worry about their long term waterproofness, not being full leather. Given the fact that I live far south of the border I don't feel that I can justify splashing out on a pair of full price Nepal's.

Any advice?
