Spring'18 marks Asolo's official launch of the Mont Blanc GV, the latest product evolution within their Expedition line up and a boot specifically designed for use on ice falls and high altitude mountaineering up to 4,000m. The introduction of the Mont Blanc GV is significant in serving to remind us of Asolo's technical capabilities as a brand intrinsically rooted in the world of technical mountaineering and the timeless Italian tradition of footwear manufacturing.
Is 4,000 metres really high altitude? Whilst I'm not saying that 4,000 metre peaks are easy, as an altitude limit it seems to lack ambition and as a categorisation of high altitude it seems just plain wrong.
Course, it might just be me. But in this case, I don't think so.
