/ Boots Dilemma-Trango Guide
Off to the Cairngorms next weekend. Flying so can only carry limited kit.
Dilemma-Could use my trusty Scarpa Charmoz boot but i've recently bought some Trango Guide boots.
My head says Charmoz but my feet say Trango!!!! They need to be christened at some point. I have C1 crampons to fit the Trango's
What would you do?
BTW-only up to grade 2 scrambling so both sets are upto the job.
I will do some crampon testing walking round the garden!
I take it whichever boots you take, you will be wearing them on the plane?
trainers weigh less than mountaineering boots, and take up less bag space
Also agree that you should wear the boots on the plane so should have to worry about weight. If they are actually Trango Guides, I definitely take the Charmoz as they will be much warmer and crampons will fit properly.
All the best anyway and hope you get some decent weather.
