  • Graham said You could certainly get a larger-than-you-would-normally-buy Katana lace and use them, but I think you'd be better off with a Mythos, Masai (nice shoe and doesn't stretch), Helix etc... Best to have a quiver of shoes. G

  • Craig.Hosking said Thanks Graham, Ideally I was attempting to see if I could get a comfortable high performance shoe I could use for sport and long alpine. Hence the thought of Katana Lace or TC Pro. Think now I'll keep a separate gym/sport shoe. Climbing grade...

    For a bold few, there is always some new, mixed climbing to be found on the west face of the Remarkables’—even when conditions are on the thin side. Queenstown climbers Steve Skelton, Adam Carlson, Ben Dare made the first ascent of The Principal’s Daughter (M5+, 4 pitches) in mid-June, when there was not much snow. A bit later in the season, and just before the Remarkables Ice and Mixed Festival commenced, Steve and Graham Johnson climbed another new, mixed line on 8 August, called Naturalization (20/M6, 7 pitches).
