Hi, Climbing shoes like sloution, python, testarosa, vapor-v are as new after resoling. But as allways if you resole it in time so no rand replacement is needed. You can see some pictures of resoled solotion on www.shoedoctor.eu regards, Miha

Edelried says: If you climb often, (i think like 2 or 3 times a week or more), you should retire your rope after a year or use it only for toprope climbing. My thoughts: It depends on the condition of the rope. Is it damaged? Can you see the core? So cut this part of, or retire. For me i use a short indoor rope and after a year and a half i don't wanna climb it anymore. The handling becomes really bad and i cut the ends 3 times so it is not long enough anymore. My second rope is for outdoor climbing. This one is used not so often.... (more)

If it makes you feel better, there's a section of the movie King Lines where Sharma goes trad climbing with his old friend/mentor. They both wear helmets then. :)

It is Dragon knot (dračí smyčka). There could be another modification to tie one more loop through the uper harnes loop and into a dragon loop to stabilize rope with knot in better position then tie double fishermans. IAm using this knot.

Hi Jamey, I'm afraid that the answer depends on a number of factors, from how seriously you're taking it to the type of problems you're likely to be climbing. Some competitors (particularly at the top level) will take multiple pairs of shoes into an event so that they can change them depending on the style of the problem.... (more)

My son started around age 3. Think it depends on the child and it should always just be fun. As there is gear for all these days he has a helmet for outdoors and a full harness(think just a hip harness is still to risky) and even shoes (totaly cute... ehem cool ;). The great thing here in Germeny is that there are indoor climbing halls that have complete areas for children. He's 4 now and still having fun.

No Alyse, in case of emergency one should not add more risk, it's better to leave more gears in that case. But yes, I have abbed on a single protection... yours Paolo
