The best alpine climbing pants for fast-and-light objectives on rock, snow, and all of the terrain in between.
A sibling to the classic Cirque II Pants, the Cirque Lite brings a modern design and lighter weight for rock and alpine adventures spring-to-fall. The Cirque wearer travels through a range of ecosystems before landing their objective, which is why these pants were built to be lightweight for the approach, durable for the climb, and warm enough for the summit. A scuff guard protects yourself from crampon punctures, and a gathered cuff and narrow lower leg streamlines your footwork and visibility while rock climbing. We shaved excess fabric and weight from the Cirque Lite's waistband so it would remain comfortable underneath your harness, and a zip thigh pocket falls beneath your harness as well.
