Spitsbergen

Hello,
I have added new mountain area - Hornsundtind. I think that's the northernmost area on SummitPost :mrgreen:

I cannot paste na URL, some bug?
There is no guidebook about this mountains so I've scrapped websites and used my own photos to edit maps. I have drew schematic topo of the routes, which where used by Polish Expeditions 1957-1960.
Enjoy!

La Sportiva G2 Evo vs. Scarpa Phantom 6000

I'm looking at a choice between these boots initially for Aconcagua.
If anyone has hands-on (feet-in) experience with both boots I'd love to hear your views on how they compare.

Also, can anyone comment on sizing: for a regular street shoe I wear a 43/UK9, what size should I be going for in each of these boots?

Partner for McDonald Peak (MT) mid July?

Anyone want to hike McDonald mid-July? I'm up for a long day hike though camping sounds more appealing. I'm looking at the eastern route. The mountain closes July 15th - Sep 30th for grizzly shagging season, any days July 10-14 should work for me.
