    The popularity of rock climbing has increased in the last ten years, and so have the number of injuries. A new study finds a 63 percent increase in the number of patients treated in emergency departments for rock climbing-related injuries.

    There is definetly a feeling of 'smaller the shoe, better I climb' in the bouldering community. Mark, I find the la sportiva shoes particularly uncomfortable and useless due to the heel shape.
     
  6. I wonder what they use for a last? Chicken feet?? These days I rarely take my big boots off, but then I'm getting old and decrepit!
