Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 165 lbs

These are the last pair of mountaineering boots i will ever wear (well, until they make a new version of this) - super light, agile, extremely warm, and great for every application from ice climbing to casual ridge walking.

They are essentially the same weight as the Phantom Tech but seem to climb a bit more natural, and fit my feet a bit better.

An easy decision for any mountaineering, especially if you think you'll be climbing in colder temps.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: 9 - (But i am usually a 9.5)

For precise placements on footholds, a nice soft mid sole, and the fit like a solid slipper - the Mundaka is my new favorite sport climbing shoe. I've had the chance now to try it in both the gym and at a limestone crag and I'm really stoked on the performance of these.

In regards to fit - a reviewer below noted how these fit with wide feet and long toes -

I HAVE WIDE FEET, BUT NOT SO LONG TOES. Maybe that is the difference, but i also believe fitting these is a little different than other Tenayas.

TENAYA'S RUN LARGE! So usually i am a 9.5 for most climbing shoes - with these I am a 9 - and that is really sizing up from most other Tenayas. I don't feel crushed in them and I for sure believe they will break in a bit more.

They produce a very narrow profile to the foot, and center a lot of the power over the big toe. Very precise.

Nothing sucks worse than a pair of tight restricting pants on a steep skin track full of switchbacks. Being able to swiftly and with ease throw your legs around will make your touring day much more seamless. To have this mobility, but also be able to handle any weather and stay dry was once a myth.

No longer.

The Descensionist pant solves the age old problem of mobility versus waterproofing. Combining both - these things are a dream come true. They also achieve the perfect combo at a decent weight.

High and Dry - breaking trail, with ease.

If you have a larger behind like myself (damn those bootpacks) - these will run a little on the small side.

For me, some of the most important features in backcountry skiing outerwear is the ability to be extremely mobile, while also staying dry and not overheating.

This jacket captures all of these features. With a stretchy hardshell - this jacket is beyond mobile. I've worn sweatshirts that are more restricting. It not only is extremely stretchy, but its mobile in the right places. I am unrestricted in my motions. This makes climbing ridges, even ice climbing with my skis on my back, much more natural feeling.

Keeps my dry when it start to wet snow out. But it also keeps me dry when i need to tour hard and fast and break a sweat. It's so breathable that i often can throw it on at the beginning of the tour and wont take it off until back at the car. I've never had a jacket be able to handle my sweatiness before, but of course Patagonia dialed this in.

Descent is important - but going up is what may make or break a tour - this jacket is the perfect solution to any tourer's jacket problems.

Size Purchased: 34 x 32

Stretchy, classic, casual, perfect for all occasions.

If you're like myself - a person who needs a pair of pants that can serve all the purposes in your life, these are them.

I often make plans to climb immediately after getting off work at 5pm. With limited time and sunlight, I've designed my post work schedule to be as efficient as possible - these are the ultimate conduit.

I can present at my 3:30 marketing meeting and be at the crag without dropping trou'. Seemless transition from work to crag and back again.

They are perfectly stretchy, comfortable on the skin, and fit like a nice pair of khakis. Perfect for high stepping on those dime edges, slaying TPs reports, or belly'ing up to the bar.

Fit a little tight at first but break in really quick. I'm borderline 33 and went with the 34 and they fit perfectly.

These have become the pants I reach for first after every wash... sooooo comfortable.

For when you wanna be classy, but you're here to party.

I have been using this pack as my work bag as well as a travel bag. Great compartmental organization, keeps my camera in one place, lenses in another, and can fit anything I need for the day. Has a designated laptop sleeve with a zipper closure that is easy to access and doesn't get in the way of anything else.

Easy side access, very sleek design, and can be combined with all of the Peak Design accessories.

Great pack for all uses, and it's a beautiful looking bag.

Unicore - Check!
Dry - Check!
Skinny - Check!
Beautiful - Check!

As far as skinny ropes go, this rope may be the king. It's not only extremely high performing - easy to handle, lighter weight for it's diameter - added security with Unicore - but it's also a great looking rope. I've used it now for sport cragging, alpine routes, long multipitch trad.

9.2 is the new 9.6 - this rope is the standard for skinnier 9mil ropes. And again, UNICORE, this makes me feel so much better about skinnier lines and it only adds to the list of benefits on this cord.

Get sendy!

I have been amazed at not only the performance of these boots on the downhill, but the overall simplicity of them.

1 buckle, 1 strap - its all you need to get a 110 flex that feels as stiff as a Maestrale, but without all the "mess" to deal with. Has a better range of motion, is lighter, and is simply switched from tour to ski mode. The lever in the back can even be depressed with a ski pole to lock into ski mode - no need to bend down.

I have been super impressed with these boots and i know they will last many seasons as there aren't moving parts to break.

I often ask a lot of my D shaped locking biners. I have about 6 of them on my rack/harness at all times for all sorts of acts. This biner has risen in the ranks as my favorite.

Super smooth action on the screwgate, red indicator - great for PAS connection and letting you know when you AREN'T locked.

And they have a great light feel to them. Lighter than the BD Nitron Screwgate and a whole lot more carabiner.

Very versatile and easy to clip/unclip with the key gate.

New Favor Locker!

I have been a long time convert to the TC Pro / Katana Lace Combo. I am sure i am not alone in this combo - I use my Tc Pro's for moderate multipitch and trad, and my Katana Lace's for more technical and aggressive lines.

The Quantum fits right in here. Except it has the added benefit of sticky Stealth. This shoe is pretty stiff in the midsole, but has a precise downturn to it that gives it stability and performance. It fits my wide foot great! I am a 9.5 and I bought the 9.5 and it fits great!

If you are like me and needed something stickier and a bit more precise - the quantum is leaps and bounds in the right direction. I give it 5 stars as it has allowed me to climb somethings i was previously scared of climbing before, small footholds with runouts.
