Helmsdal, Hurrangane, etc.

Leaning towards integrated gaiter - eg batura/phantom tech. Would single leathers be warm enough?

I've done overnights in the Northeast with temps bottoming out around -20 F, and single leathers were good enough for me...

Impossible to say. It might be anything from 40 and raining to -20 or lower. I've struggled to find ice to climb some winters and experienced blizzards in July. Sorry, not much help.

I suspected as much. Thanks.

However, there's no altitude in question. Highest peaks are around 8000 feet. I only own single boots, as do most of my friends who climb in Norway. If you're staying in a house, eat and sleep well and put on dry socks in the morning I'm absolutely sure you'll be fine in singles.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
