Advice

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
warm the outsole by rubbing with your hand before climbing (making rubber instantly sticky to avoiding wearing in first minutes of use due to outsole slipping on the rock because it is cold); clean the rubber after climbing (before it cools so dust doesn't stick).
Storage Tips
avoid very hot or damp areas (in the car during summer, near a heat source); Store in a cool, dry place.

    Replacement for Vaurde Plus Slipper

    I'd previously had the Vaurde Plus slipper but couldn't get on with it due to its single velro fastening which gave poor stability so swoipped to the Vertika slipper which is much better with the twn velcro fastening albeit they are a bit long. The boot is comfy yet tight and so far I don't get much roll on small holds.Climbing in the HVS - E2 F6A-6B category. Friction seems good but its still early days and I'm not sure how much stretch there will be in the boot. Seems a good buy for the money.

    Anfangs Top - jetzt Flop

    Bei den ersten 3-4 Mal hat sich der Schuh sehr gut angefühlt und guten Halt vermittelt. Ab etwa dem 4. Tragen liess die Spannung des Materials nach - jetzt rutscht der Fuss im Schuh, Halt an der Wand lässt such nur noch schwer umsetzen. Für mich nah 7 Mal tragen leider nicht mehr verwendbar...

    Gatos vertika

    En general el gato tienda buen tacto, tanto para la piedra como el rocodromo, depende por supuesto del grado de la persona, para mí personalmente que tengo nivel medio bastante agradable.
    Quizás la goma que envuelve la punta debería ser más denso y rígido; puesto que flexiona mucho y pierde eficacia, por otro lado creo que la goma del talón está demasiada alta resultando incómoda e innecesaria para un gato con estas características, quizás en vez de terminar en goma debería acabar en piel para así hacerlo más cómodo.
