Arc’teryx

Gripped - - THE RACK BUYER’S GUIDE -

Kon­seal FL Ap­proach Shoe

With plenty of cush­ion­ing and flex­i­ble chas­sis, this low weight ath­letic ap­proach shoe feels more like a trail run­ner than a hiker. The Vi­bram Me­ga­grip tread is good for those early sea­son wet-trail ap­proaches where they might still be snow patches. Arc’teryx has a rep­u­ta­tion for high-end man­u­fac­tur­ing and the Kon­seal FL ex­cels in that re­gard. From the stitch­ing to over­lays to up­per to toe cap, these are built well. Highly rec­om­mended. As a top choice for sport climbers, the new 9.4 mm rope from Black Di­a­mond prom­ises dura­bil­ity, like all Black Di­a­mond ropes, but at an eas­ier-to-clip weight. The di­ame­tre has proven it­self with sport climbers pro­ject­ing routes and just out for laps. It runs smooth through your be­lay de­vice and clips easy. Another top choice when se­lect­ing a rope this spring.
