Salewa’s advanced technologies and versatile, multi-sport designs enable you to traverse rocks, snow, technical trails, via ferrata, and any other terrain in security and comfort.

Adding to an already impressive demo line up- Salewa will be bringing their latest ice climbing boots for participants to try.


Pro Gaitor Mounatineering Boot

From mixed climbing to vertical ice, this rugged, four-season boot features an embedded aluminum stay in the heel that tightens or loosens at the turn of a key to switch between walk mode and a rigid climbing mode. No longer do your feet need suffer on the approach.

  • Lightweight Schoeller Super Fabric upper resists abrasion and moisture while maintaining breathability
  • Included Allen wrench lets you easily tighten or loosen the clearly labeled sole tension system depending on whether you’re walking or climbing
  • Waterproof breathable membrane keeps your feet dry and comfortable
  • Thinsulate 400 insulation traps heat so you don’t have to drop out of a multi-pitch ordeal to hold your toes over a fire
  • Salewa 3F system locks down your heel for a blister-free fit
  • Standard lacing with speed hooks and glove-friendly waterproof zipper pull makes for easy operation and the custom fit you’re used to
  • Top seals off with elastic, anatomic collar and secure lock
  • Full rubber rand adds durability and protection
  • Durable, grippy Vibram Salewa Pro outsole features aggressive lugs that offer a high level of grip on mud and snow when you’re not stepping into a crampon Climbing toe profile offers edging performance
