John Martin's Bio

Just moved to SLC after living in Asia for the last three years. Originally from south Florida, I enjoy being outdoors, especially now that I no longer live in the heat and humidity. Im a skateboarder first and climber second, though Im climbing more than I skate these days.

Havent used it outside, but have used on my home anchors that i practice different setups and techniques. Moves very smoothly up the rope compared to my ropeman. Also like the catch that holds back the teeth for ease of lowering the device or using it as a pulley

Height: 6' 1"
Weight: 185 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Only had one day in it, but it was during a 10 inch powder day with snow coming down all day and it all stayed out. Pockets in all the right places leaves little complaints. The only thing i wish was different was a bigger hood to go over my helmet. I can get it over now, but its very constrictive.

Bought for the lady, here's what she said: Huge difference from the $30 shop rental bindings she bought after first moving to Utah and scrounging for gear. They are lightweight and has much more control now. Also, with the toe binding, it applies pressure much more evenly so her toes get less constricted and therefor cold.

Bought this for my lady, her thoughts are, “ fantastic harness for a bit of everything. 4 gear loops make it very functional for sport/trad while it’s lightweight material isn’t too heavy for the gym. It was a little stiff coming out of the bag, but it’s getting more flexible to me with each climb. Also, I love the purple color.”

Bought these for my lady, her thoughts are... “these shoes are magical, they were comfortable from the first minute wearing them! The reversed waffle is just enough traction so that I can comfortable walk over snow and some ice but also comfortable inside on flat ground! They are also warm but not so warm that my feet get gross when wearing them inside all day. They honestly feel like walking on clouds, I love them so much!”

...after you decided to stick to the ethics (or laws) of hand bolting. One quick wack to the head and everything will be over. If you can bear through it, the heavier weight gives your drill a slight edge over your home hammer and your belayer will thank you for having the leash. And after putting your first bolt in, you'll be enlightened to why all your classics are run out. Now that you got your creds, go buy a hammer drill

Small handle for those with bigger hands but still gets the job done. After your first bolt, you'll understand why those old school routes are so damn run out! Now imagine doing it on lead and in boots....
