mountaineering boots : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

I am looking at buying a pair of winter boots for climbing Shasta, and just plain snowshoeing in. I have found a pair of Trezeta evolution mountaineering boots on sale but nobody seems to no the temp. rating on them. I am also looking at the salomon powderspikes but don't know how good they would be for mountaineering, please help.

For Shasta, some Asolo Clasic's would be ideal, Leather boot with seperate liner and the fully rigid sole off the Asolo AFS Plastics. I spent 11 days in near white out, snowcaving in the Southern Alps in New Zealand & it was the first time I'd ever got cold feet in these.

Oh, & they're fairly cheap & REAL comfy, so good for low level mountaineering.. After looking around for a few weeks I'm upgrading to Plastics (Asolo Expiditions) next week. I'll let you know...

If you want a plastic double boot, the Koflach Degre's are pretty damn cheap. They retail for like $255 and you can replace the liners with warmer ones if you want to. They're made for mountaineering, and i thought they were pretty comfortable. Leather has it's advantages, but i love the warmth of double boots.
