Tour du Mont Blanc (TWP) - Shoes or Boots?

Fri, 08/08/2014 - 13:23

Hi eveyone,

Been thinking about kit for this trip (TWP) for a while - still can't decide whether to go with shoes or boots - any thoughts from anyone that is going or has done this trip before?

Thanks,
Paul.

Boots without any doubt-some long ascents and descents on this trip, and ankle support is a must.

Well its not quite Crib Goch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELdijJpGcyc but there are some steep exposed rocky trails on the MTB circuit some with rails. Some sections would be ok with approach shoes others definitely boots. Expect some heavy rain.

I agree with Steve - I did this trip a couple of years ago, and a lot of the paths have loose rocks/stones. Definitely boots.
