I just got back from a week in Yosemite and I am sold on these shoes. I did Cathedral Peak, Royal Arches, and Half Dome and used these shoes on the approach for each. Snow, mud, hard packed trail, granite slabs, these shoes excelled at all the terrain I threw at them. I carried loads up to thirty pounds (climbing gear) in them with no issues. I had concerns about them holding up on scree slopes and some of the more technical approaches but they seem to be top-notch on durability. Super light, durable, and awesome sticky rubber make these shoes keepers. They don't climb quite as well as my Five.Ten Guides but they are SO much more comfy for long approaches. The only downside is that I don't see the sticky rubber lasting all that long, but that's the price you pay for what these shoes can do.
