Scarpa Zodiac Tech GTX Mountaineering Boot - Men's

Designed to fill the gap between your approach shoes and mountaineering boots, the Scarpa Zodiac Tech GTX Men's Mountaineering Boot boasts a versatile design that will make the most of long approaches below treeline, long scrambles up scree-covered alpine environs, and tolerate the occasional front-point action up icy couloirs and across glacial valleys.The Zodiac Tech is a slightly stiffer version of the Zodiac Plus, making this boot the better option for those who plan on spending more time above treeline on snow and glacial ice. The Gore-Tex membrane ensures waterproof and breathable protection when you are traveling across snowy terrain or water-logged trails, and the durable Perwanger leather upper is naturally water-resistant for added protection against the elements. The boot has a relatively stiff feel thanks to its multi-density PU and EVA midsole, and its heel welt will accept hybrid crampons when you do need to do some glacial travel--although anything more technical than the occasional glacier crossing should be left to a stiffer mountaineering boot like Scarpa's Mont Blanc or Rebel Pro. Whether you're French stepping up snow or ice, the Zodiac's full-wrap rubber rand will protect the boot from wear and tear, and the Sock-Fit Construction will ensure a comfortable fit when you're crossing scree fields or hauling a week's worth of gear back to the trailhead.

October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
