I have worn my ICE 9's twice for winter climbs in snow and on rock. I'm rating them a 4 only because I haven't had a chance to get on them on vertical ice yet. They are comfortable and a pleasure on approaches. Light weight, warm, dry, stiff carbon fiber midsole, supportive and nimble..easy to feel the rock in these babies. Would prefer plactics on expedition stuff. I have talked to a couple of guys who sawed off the steel crampon brackets as Montrail won't have their special crampons back on the market for some time. So far I haven't encountered any footing problems because of them so I'm leaving them intact. may still have a great buy on these.
