Shingo Ohkawa Trades his Rack for Draws at the 2013 International Climbers’ Fest

Jul. 23rd 2013

A few weeks ago, I had the unique pleasure of attending the 2013 International Climbers’ Festival in Lander, Wyoming—home to the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) and two of the West’s most celebrated sport crags, Wild Iris and Sinks Canyon. Despite the fact that I’ve done almost zero sport climbing—ever, the trip was, for this stubborn traddie, a terrific opportunity to see how the other half lives, and how to live off a steady diet of humble pie.

Climb on with SCARPA’s premium climbing shoe, the Boostic

Jun. 27th 2013

When dangling from a rock wall, hundreds of feet above the earth’s surface with nothing more than a harness, ropes, and some bolts, there’s nothing more vital than having full control over your next move. This is where the SCARPA Boostic comes into play. This professional rock shoe designed by Heinz Mariacher, provides toe power and precision in vertical and overhanging terrain. Intended to provide maximum edging and maneuverability, the Boostic features SCARPA’s Vibram XS Edge for ultimate grip and durability. Combined with a stretchable upper made with micro suede and leather, the Boostic is an easy-on / easy-off shoe that fits most feet types. Additionally, the SCARPA V-Tension active rand pulls tension from the forefoot backward to provides you with the power and accuracy needed to make your next move without experiencing pain.

Finding the Perfect Shoes for all of Your Adventures

Jun. 19th 2013

Arltey Goodhart has been an invaluable member of the SCARPA team for four years in the warranty department and is currently studying pathology and microbiology. He enjoys most styles of climbing – everything from from big wall to bouldering but big climbs that require full commitment and persistence are what he finds most rewarding.

Ah, springtime. Everything is fresh, new and the climbing temps are nothing short of perfect. As a student, spring grants me time to finally venture to the climbing spots I’ve had my eye on for the past semester. For me, springtime equals an agenda of multi-sport days that include climbing, running and biking.
