Looking at getting a pair of B3's for this winter and hopefully some stuff in the alps this summer. Currently using Scarpa SL actives year round and I was wondering which boots would fit fairly similar to this?
Ideally looking for something with a fairly square toe box and comfy.
I'd like to order a few to try on but given I'm a broke climber don't want to splash out on 10 pairs even if i am gonna send most back straight away
I’ve used sl’s for years. I’ve found Nepal extremes also fit me but I do find the soles very unforgiving on the balls of my feet although most people I know with these boots don’t have this issue.
I also found freney’s and cumbres fitted so I suspect Mont blancs will also. You may want to consider getting B2. More comfort and fine up to around UK grade V or so. B3 definitely take a greater toll on my feet.
This Alpine Conditions page gives a summary of what is being climbed at the moment, what is 'in' nick and
what the prospects are...
