SCARPA Instinct hits Main Street Bozeman

Jul. 27th 2010

One of our sales reps, Dan Gettmann, stopped by Barrel Mountaineering up in Bozeman, MT, recently, and was stoked to find the new SCARPA Instinct highlighted with this drawing on the board outside the shop on the main drag in downtown.

The folks at Barrel like to highlight products they’re psyched on with an artistic interpretation on the board, so Brandon Smith, a local climber who works in the shop (and has been logging some time in and liking the Instincts), created this drawing, highlighting the fact the Instinct recently won Climbing Magazine’s 2010 Editor’s Choice Award.

Psyched to have folks like Brandon, who’s known in the local climbing community for setting routes at the local gym, Spire Climbing Center, and climbing hard (13 sport and 12 trad), getting a feel for what’s going on with SCARPA rock shoe program the last few years.

    Seems like the word is out in Bozeman that Scarpa makes the best rock shoes available! ¬† That is a mighty fine compliment that Brandon was inspired enough to draw them up. ¬†Once it stops raining….we will all get out to use them a bit more…
