Black Diamond ATC Guide

Black Diamond ATC Guide My Review

A great general multi pitch belay device.

A great general multi pitch belay device. Also can use for ascending a rope if done properly. The orientation of the guide loop (loop on top of belay device) is side to side to it is oriented nicely when attached to your harness with a carabiner.

Arc'teryx Alpha AR Jacket

Arc'teryx Alpha AR Jacket My Review

I have had this jacket for a couple months now and spring season in Michigan, I have needed it.

I have had this jacket for a couple months now and spring season in Michigan, I have needed it. In a complete downpour I was completely dry underneath. When I get back to my car, I take it off for a dry comfortable ride home, and within a 20-30 the jacket has almost dried completely after laying it out over my passenger seat. This jacket is great for climbing, specially alpine conditions when you need a hard shell. The pockets are up at the check leaving room for a harness to go around the waist, and has a synchronized down hood for a tighter fit around your head/helmet. Great product. The only down side is that when I where it out casually (not what it is designed for) I like to have pockets for my hands down low. But when your climbing in the alpine wearing a harness, this wouldn’t be an issue. For a better casual pocket situation, maybe check out the Beta series.

Five Ten Anasazi Moccasym Climbing Shoe

Five Ten Anasazi Moccasym Climbing Shoe My Review

I looove this shoe.

I looove this shoe. Very comfortable, wearable all day as long as you size it correctly. I don’t know if sizing has changed since Adidas bought 5.10, but you want to size them pretty snug, because it is an unlined leather shoe and will stretch almost a complete size. Once broken in, they are very comfortable and they are one of my favorite shoes. Ideal for crack climbing, slab/edging, or all day multi pitch.
