SCARPA’s Zen Pro and Moraine Mid Offer Performance with a Purpose

May. 19th 2015

On trail and off, light hiking boots have to contend with myriad circumstances: dust, scree, mud, rocks, roots, washed out switchbacks—the list goes on. Whether you’re covering ground on multi-day journeys on the Pacific Crest Trail, or slithering up an incipient single track to the base of a climb in the Wind Rivers of Wyoming, the right kind of light hiker is clutch. We like to think we’ve got you covered. Why? Because they do.

Retailer Shout Outs: Desert Rock Sports, Las Vegas

Apr. 23rd 2013

Desert Rock Sports is the total package, or, rather, a part of the total package. This niche climbing shop has been the epicenter for Las Vegas climbers for more than 25 years. Current owners Travis Graves, Mike Lorenzo and Steve Mallory met at the store years ago while Travis was an employee. In 2005, the three of them partnered to purchase the shop, as well as the adjacent indoor climbing gym, and Red Rocks Climbing Guides service – an extension of Jackson Hole Mountain Guides. Between the shop, the gym and the guide service, they can outfit, educate and introduce climbers, new and old, to an enormity of world-class climbing just down the road.
