I scored a great deal on a pair of Nuptses. I've taken them up some WI3 and WI4 routes, they're probably a 1/2 size too large for technical ice (i get a tiny bit of heel lift) but I figure for high altitude slogging, it will protect my toes a little better and also allow for swelling.
What are your thoughts on the Nuptse vs the 6000? I got the Nuptses so cheap I can sell them off no problem and the Phantom 6000 is on nice clearance all around the interwebs. Are both appropriate for both mountains?
In terms of saving weight - has anyone resoled the Nuptse or swapped out the liner? Any leads on that?
Essentially, I'm looking for any good info on boots so drop some knowledge on me.
