Scarpa's Ueli Steck inspired Mont Blanc range of boots have been a constant favourite among winter mountaineers for years. The Pro GTX model is a new classic - a highly technical, tough, all-mountain boot designed to hit the sweet spot between lightness and durability.
When you consider that the Mont Blanc Pro GTX is a B3 boot, it is both remarkably comfortable and impressively light. B3 boots can be pretty burly and rigid beasts and while the Mont Blanc Pro GTX has all the technical features associated with this category, it offers a surprisingly relaxed ride.
It may be comfortable but there's no mistaking the intentions of the Mont Blanc Pro GTX. The clue, after all, is really in the name. Designed primarily for winter mountaineering, mixed climbing and winter walking, the Mont Blanc Pro GTX is a sturdy boot packed full of features to enable swift and efficient progression in cold conditions.
Designed to work with step-in crampons, the Vibram Total Traction outsole of the Mont Blanc Pro GTX provides an excellent platform underfoot. Using the latest dual density PU inserts with Scarpa Activ impact technology, the rugged outsole offers the perfect balance of support, protection and comfort - imperative for long and demanding days on the hill.
The Scarpa Mont Blanc Pro GTX does an excellent job of keeping winter where it belongs - on the outside of the boot. The rugged 3mm suede leather upper is super durable and the GORE TEX Performance liner kept our feet warm and dry on the harshest of Scottish winter days. Sockfit technology and the integrated semi gaiter further enhance the boot's ability to keep toes toasty by preventing scree and snow from getting in over the top of the boot. They also help to deliver the snug yet flexible feel of the boot that makes the Scarpa Mont Blanc Pro GTX a seriously impressive all-season mountain contender.
