yet ... the OP specifically stated he didnt think the sportivas were comfortable for hiking ... its like me telling you to get a pack which doesnt fit you ...

simple point is if the OP thinks he can climb fine in whatever shoes he brings ... im not going to tell him he cant do it

one doesnt NEED "approach" shoes to do easy climbs ... point in case being that my terrocs have as "sticky" a rubber as some of my "approach" shoes ... as tested on squamish slab

Spikes on wet rock? on 05/17/2011 21:59:35 MDT Print View

Re: "i find microspikes or the hillsound trail crampons quite useful ... especially on compacted snow/ice ..." The ad says that microspikes also work on wet rock. Anyone test this out?

Spikes can also leave permanent scratches on rock, so please be mindful of that.
