Lowa Weisshorn GTX

For climbing ice and mixed routes in southwest Montana, a boot’s fit and comfort are key. Our approaches can be long, and the weather is notoriously cold and fickle, and with the inherent wetness and inactivity of climbing and belaying, it’s a tough job for any piece of footwear. The Weisshorn GTX, however, makes it seem easy. Walking and climbing comfort are easily adjusted in seconds with a lacing system that isolates the forefoot from the cuff—more flex for the approach, then cinch it down for maximum support while climbing. They’re also remarkably light, warm, and totally waterproof all the way up the cuff (as tested by an accidental slip into Hyalite Creek). Climbing feels solid on ice and mixed routes, and durability so far is phenomenal. $480; lowaboots.com.
