Approach and Mountaineering

You like walking at high altitude and are an enthusiastic mountain climber. You walk through very steep unstable rocky terrain. You thus need mountaineering or approach shoes or boots that are crampon compatible.
How to choose your mountaineering and approach shoes or boots.
Alpine and mountaineering shoes or boots are called “semi-automatic” since crampons can be fixed to them. Extremely stiff, they provide very good ankle support and have excellent thermal properties to protect you in all circumstances, even when climbing a wall of ice. A couple of the most popular models that we recommend are the Asolo Elbrus GV and the Salomon X Alp. Close to the foot for excellent sensitivity, they are completely waterproof and provide an excellent grip on all types of terrain. Go get vertical!
