Dan Steinbeigle's Bio

I am basically a rock climber stuck in a college student's life. I mountain bike when my fingers hurt. I play guitar when my legs and my hands are too hashed.

This shoe is super comfortable, and excels on technical climbs. I was worried that it wouldn't edge as well after the sharp lip wore off the sole, but They are still edging like brand new after several months of regular climbing. The heel is a bit baggy, but it still hooks really well. I have never slipped off a heel hook in these shoes. Love 'em.

I can personally attest to the effectiveness of this belay. My friends and I have climbed on it quite a bit and it catches any fall easily. I personally think that lowering is easier with the Smart than with a Grigri or Cinch. Also, I prefer lead belaying with the Smart. I have some friends who prefer GriGri, but...just a matter of preference. I feel this device feeds rope easier for clipping. This is most noticeable when the climber is pulling for a clip. Overall, I like using the Smart. It is light, small and has no moving parts to worry about.

I love this bag. I am a person who detests being cold so I never camp in winter. Because of that, I don't need a bag that goes lower than about freezing. This bag does it. I am sort of a warm sleeper anyway, but I have never even had to zip this bag all the way up, even without a sleeping pad. And it packs into the tiniest little package and weighs almost nothing. I am 5'6" and the bag doesn't feel confining. It allows me a comfortable amount of room to move in. A perfect warm weather camping bag.
