Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought a basket of these for my rack - now I have locking biners coming out of my eyeballs - which is great because I have a friend who is notorious for never bringing them and often had to belay me off of a non-locking biner (sketch)

Now I just let him borrow a couple of these and we're locked and loaded (pun intended)

If you have high arches these will crush your instep.

I had to return them - the rubber also seemed very hard, which may wear out over time, but out of the box this shoe was pretty stiff.

The overlapping "sock" inner is a little odd for a trail running shoes - (works great in their climbing shoes) - but as I strided the overlap began to bunch up.

I've perused my way through this book too many times now, it also serves as some bathroom reading from time to time, and i am consistently finding hidden gems of the Wasatch in here.

Don't get tunnel vision on the number of stars, and get out and explore some of those lesser known areas!

This season I've decided to convert my ski touring mentality to the trails. That being said, a trail run is only as good as the kicks on your feet - with ill fitting or bulky shoes I feel hampered down, or in pain.

These fit like a glove out of the box - perfect sizing - i wear a 9.5, bought a 9.5 - fits perfect.

The closure/lacing is simple and hassle free - tighten em up, tuck away the closure and you wont have to deal with it until you are back at home/car. Wont untie, or tangle, and keeps closed/tight the whole way.

These things have a little drop which is great for the uphill, but they are not bulky by any means. The feel really low profile and glide along the trail.

I'm beginning to see the pleasure in the whole trail running thing, primarily thanks to these shoes.

I got this so that i can do ASADA right!

There is nothing better than getting a fire wicked hot, burning it down to coals, throwing a few pieces of harder wood on there, and tossing some big pieces of Rib Eye steak on this and letting is sizzle! Only season with salt! this is crucial.

It also works great as a level stand for my skillet, which is my go to for everything else - pancakes, scrambles, omelets, quesadillas, fajitas.. mmmmmmm

CAMPING is done right when you over do the meals. Impress your friends by throwing down the 4 star chef style at the campground. Flexin.

I specifically use these on my slackline kit as the amount of force can get up there that you put on the system.

Surprisingly affordable for some STEEL action. Great for top rope anchors as the carabiner that the rope runs through - much more resistant to groovin.

Steel your face!

There are some routes out there - one in particular that it was very helpful to have this. I was able to make a short impromptu stick clip with a little tape and a stick i found and attached this biner (with the other half of a draw) and was able to reach up and clip the first bolt on the second pitch of what would have been a sketchy factor 2 fall on the anchor...

But this thing saved me from that fear.

Buy a couple as they are helpful in all situations!

I thought this shoe climbed very similar to the:

KATANA LACE
VAPOR V

It has a slight aggressive feel - but the lacing system allows for an adjustable fit and is quite comfortable.

I also thought this shoe edged extremely well! It's got a nice downturn, but not too much to prevent it from being used crack climbs.

Fit my wider foot just fine, but, like i said, the lacing allows for it to be adjusted.

One of my new favorites!

After having now used this device for 5 seasons, i'd have to say i can not imagine climbing without it.

The autolocking action on rappel is what makes this device ideal - it keeps you safe, when things could go wrong. It allows you a little more wiggle room to mess with the rope and it will prevent a very serious accident, hopefully.

I've now become so intune with how it belays that there is no sticking or catching when giving slack or taking it in.

Stop messing around and get with the times!
