this board got waaay too easy. so, FLIP IT OVER. very small crimps, small slopers, and jugs at the top and bottom still. THIS THING IS SICK turned upside down.
This thing is amazing, I use it every weekend on climbing trips at Horseshoe Canyon, even in the winter, granted it only gets down to about 10 or 15 in Arkansas but with a Thermarest its still warm. Easy as hell to set up, always set up and broken down faster than any of my friends with tents, comfier than a tent, and you don't get condensation or even dew(somehow). Now I have it set up in my dorm room during the week.
Absolutely my favorite shoe I have owned, which include venoms and solutions. vibram xs rubber. great fit. although, go with your street shoe size. its not a normal sizing so just your street shoe size or a half size smaller.
sorry. no. probably wont even fit in the trunk. with no room
They are very simple and easy to use. The newer models of q towers(not compared to y towers) are much easier than the older ones. I had to get just the pair because my older ones broke when i was reinstalling them to my car. But these are great. Good price from backcountry.com. actually better than yakima themselves.
Seeing how im not a smaller woman i couldnt give a 100% answer but i dont see where any problems would come into play whatsoever.
super smooth. super light. carabiners are kinda small but no where near as small as those mad rock shits. the gates are also stiff. not too stiff, but stiff enough. just a perfect amount of everything. i got 6 12cm for my friend and he got 6 18 cm and its a perfect sport rack.
they will send you a ups box and you'll pick it up off your front porch and you'll think they sent you an empty box.
This thing... oh this thing. If I had to choose between this and my tent on backpacking or climbing trips I would for sure choose this. If you've never used a Thermarest they are well worth the money. Not only are they so much softer than normal foam pads the air works as an excellent insulator so you stay much warmer at night. Also, it stays flat while foam pads roll up under you occasionally. The fabric on this is grippy ( the only way i know to describe it) it just keeps you on the pad all night rather than slipping off of it. mostly because you sink into it to a degree. Not only does this pad have all of these great benefits, its also comfy. I wouldn't go with anything else.
one of my favorite shoes. not my favorite (Scarpa Booster). but it is incredible. the only reason its not my favorite is because it doesn't retain aggressiveness after a long season. kind of flattens out. also the toe box is very narrow. i actually have scars on my toes it was so tight up there. it wasn't too small length wise just narrow. keep that in mind. could be good or bad depending on your foot. great heel. no bubble what so ever. slip-on stays on no Hook-and-loop necessary. the toe rand makes toe hooking much more solid. and the best part ... Vibram XS
I cant think of anything better. I sleep in this at home it's so comfy. totally worth the money. i like the double vent feature for warmer weather. but i would actually call this a four season bag. ive used it with no tent on a 2 degree night and been fine.
If you're thinking about any other stove, then, well, stop thinking. If you've never used one the ease of lighting it alone makes it worth buying. A button. You push it. that's all. you never have to push it twice. somehow its invincible to wind. i don't know how, but it is. thats stretching it a bit but damn. super efficient on fuel. packs into itself. lightweight. you can drink right out of it. so easy to use. hopefully some people who read this make the right decision. just buy it.
this was my first climbing shoe. after i found out what was important in a climbing shoe i realized these didn't have much. the guy who said they don't stink must have gotten them recently. any shoe that is lined will stink. the rubber is like climbing with a tupperware on your foot. super hard, cant smear on much at all. if you're climbing on jugs it wouldn't be a problem. it isn't the worst shoe in the world but please for your own benefit go with a better shoe. (La sSortiva, Scarpa, 5.10, maybe even red chili) but fork out the extra money and just get a good shoe.
do i want this or the salsa? who knows? i dont.
what do i want? this or the samba deluxe? im in a pickle Ronny.
These shoes are great for heel hooks and technical things but the rubber on the bottom is terrible. They wear out quick and you get almost no traction when smearing. I would go with the la sportiva mythos. They are a bit more expensive but well worth it. much more comfortable and top-line rubber on the soles. You wouldnt know youve been wearing climbing shoes when you take them off.
