Great feel/traction, HORRIBLE durability
1 5

Perfect as a set for crit races, but that's it...

I had read all the reviews but over looked most bad reviews... Sadly... Here's a photo of my tire below, this hole ran out all my sealant without me realizing it and now I'm currently waiting on the side of the road for my ride..
You might think I'm wrong, but I have not hit a single thing with these tires, they only have 3 rides and about 4.5-5 hours on them.. this hole is simply from wear...

Honestly these have been a waste of $80 a pop...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 11"

Thought this shoe was great being my first climbing shoe until after 1 month of gym climbing 4 times a week(bouldering at momentum in Lehi) when the rubber started separating from the shoes.. Love La Sportiva but this was disappointing.. Lucky they should be covered under warranty.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Disclaimer, this has been my first climbing season, although I've read up a lot I'm still new to the sport.

After buying the Yellow 70m version of this rope I've fallen in love with it! It's one of 3 ropes I own and has been my go to rope, Not too heavy, and the center mark is phenomenal!

Lead climbing: it's been great but it does have a good amount of stretch to the rope. Remember it is a dynamic rope, and a good one at that. (Could be what you're looking for, maybe not)

Top rope: Awesome job, just enough give that it's soft when you fall but you will loose some ground because of the stretch in the rope (a bit more than my 35M rope I use for short climbs and at the gym).

My only complaint is after about 6 different days of solid climbing and using it in groups of about 5-6 people, it has shown some slight wear on the rope in only one place where it was in harsh contact with the wall (no kinks or weak spots in the rope though, in that sense it's very solid). Very minimal and hardly noticed but I would assume it wouldn't last more than a year or two for avid climbers, depending on how well you take care of your rope and how much contact it has with the wall and how you set up your runners.

For the price however, you can buy two 70m ropes for $260 (less expensive than almost any single 70m rope I've seen) and have a new rope every other year for 4 years. It's hard to beat that.
