I bought these boots for the purpose of climbing classic routes in the alps (PD-D) and they are perfect for this purpose. Very light with a little bit of flex in the sole for comfortable walking. Fits C2 crampons without any problem and good to climb in: decent edge and the bit of flex helps with some light smearing here and there.
I do recommend using snug fitting trousers or small gaiters with these in soft snow conditions as they are relatively low around the ankles and don't have a built in gaiter or anything. Also they look pretty rough after 6 weeks of use this season, but that is to be expected of a light synthetic shoe like this.
Definetely recommend these boots
