Nepal Cube GTX
I've got a bit of a low volume foot, but these crank down just right; 2 Rainer summits, Olympus, Sahale, St Helens (!), Shuksan and Baker.... Comfy!
I have ice climbed in Ouray for two seasons with these boots and I just love them. If you have ever ice climbed, you know how much time is spent just standing while belaying your climbing partner. My feet never got a bit cold.
