WTB: Mountaineering Boots Size 49 or 50

In the market for a large pair of (ideally leather) mountaineering boots such as LaSportiva Nepal Extremes, Scarpa, Boreal, etc. Please let me know if you have anything for sale. Recently I found the Lowa Mountain Expert GTX in a 48.5 to be too small. Also, if you happen to know a US based retailer that for whatever reason has a pair of 49/50 auto/semi auto crampon compatable boots sitting on the shelf, please let ...

Unfinished Business

I wonder if anyone else feels this way - that any peaks you have attempted but failed at for some reason tend to gnaw at you and have more subsequent attraction than other peaks. They seem like unfinished business. I feel that if ever I am in the vicinity of one of these peaks again, I must finish the job. Otherwise, I tend to favor attempting new peaks rather than revisit ones I have already ...

Heel Pain in Mountaineering Boots

Hi folks!

I've combed the internet for a solution, but haven't had much luck. I recently purchased my first pair of boots (NEPAL EVO GTX).

I followed the advice on their website, and wore the boot at home to make sure it fits well. I walked on the treadmill for weeks without any problems. My toes don't touch the front, and I had no heel lift at all. Very comfortable.

After weeks of making sure ...
