I was very impressed with this shoe but is not my first choice, especially if your doing a lot more hiking than climbing. However, if I desided I was only bringing one pair of shoes to go on a climbing outting these would so be the ones. They are more like a climbing shoe than a hiking shoe and can do both tasks well. One thing to note, the lacing comes right down to the toe and is quite wide. If you spend a lot of time in places where sand and small rocks or twigs can get into your shoes then these will probably drive you nuts!

I recently tried out a bunch of appoach shoes incueding the very expensive LaSportivas. In the end it came down to the Scarpa Quests and the Mammut Chalk shoe. The Scarpa Quests were extremely comfy, good arch support, nice looks and grippy rubber. It was a tough choice but I went with the Mammuts instead because of the rubber. The tread was better than the dots of the Quest and the rubber gripped noticably better and leave streaks all over like the Quest did.

Bottom Line: If you are planning to mostly hike the Scarpa Quest is awesome, but if you see a lot of climbing/scrambling in your future ge somthing else.
