Paul K.'s Bio

I'm an active person, and you can fine me in the climbing gym quite a bit. I like to be outside when it's nice out. I'm not as hardcore as some people out there in the freezing temps, but I do my best. Hopefully I'll be able to climb some 5.12 cleanly in my future.

Right now It's the best shoe i've owned.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These things just hug my feet and don't let go. I normally wear around a size 8us mens street shoe, and I decided to get a 39.5EU size. I have wider feet, so I tend not to downsize as much as some other people, plus I don't like my shoes hurting so much that I don't want to wear them. I probably could have gone down to a 39EU, but I would probably get 39.5EU if I get them again, which is highly probable. I used them in the gym a lot, which I'm kind of regretting due to the fact that I am now going to need a new pair soon. I do mostly technical face climbs, and some overhang. Absolutly love the fit and performance. The biggest con is the price, which is why you probably don't want them for casual use. Use them for working harder routes on small holds or overhangs.

Great Belay Device!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I previously used the Trango Cinch, which is also pretty good and cheaper, but the Petzl GriGri2 is awesome. It feeds nicely for lead climbing. Locks up right away on a fall. It is fairly compact too. The lowering may be a little rough the first couple times, but once you learn the mechanics of it, and use it as intended you will fall in love with it.
