    La Sportiva makes excellent mountaineering boots. I think most climbers will agree with this statement.

    The Trango Alp is my personal favorite in the La Sportiva line for 3 season use in the Sierra Nevada range. It's light, waterproof, and very easy wearing, making it a great choice for mixed rock and snow climbs. It's only slightly heavier than the Trango S boot, but uses more and less abrasive durable materials, which helps it hold up better, especially when you're rubbing it on granite.

    The boot will accept "semi-auto" or universal crampons, but not full automatic as it lacks a toe welt. The 3/4th shank is not ideal for crampon use, but a good compromise for climbs where you'll be spending a good portion of the time on rock.

    This is not an insulated boot, so it is likely not appropriate for colder climbing. Also, the lightweight materials present something of a compromise durability wise. It's not going to last as long as a full leather boot, but at a pound a foot that's probably a worthwhile trade-off.

    The boots insoles are a bit flimsy, I'd like to see something with a bit more support for a shanked boot, but that's somewhat a matter of personal preference, and there are many 3rd party options.

    Fit is very imporant in a mountaineering boot, so a few comments on that. The trango boots are fairly narrow, and low-volume. If you have big, wide feet, they likely are not for you. If you have a fairly small, low volume foot, this is probably one of the best options. For reference size wise, I am usually a 7.5, and have had several pairs of La Sportiva trail runners over the past few years in size 40.5. The size 40 Trango is a good fit for me.

    Overall, this is a very versitile lightweight mountaineering boot. If it fits you, at the STP price it's an absolute steal!
