I've been climbing since 1997 and I do (and love) it all--sport, trad, bouldering, ice, alpine. I'm drawn as much to the mental challenges of climbing as to the physical ones. My husband and I moved to SLC in 2002 mostly for the great access to so much varied climbing; in addition to day and weekend trips all over the mountain west, we've traveled to the Bugaboos, Sierras, and Alaska Range to get our fix. As an all-arounder, I love the variety of shoes 5.10 offers--great shoes for techy granite, steep limestone, desert cracks of all sizes, humping loads up talus-filled approaches, and moving fast on alpine rock.
