I just got the new Hiangle as a test shoe from Bergzeit...

 

During the last couple of weeks, I kept on trying “Fengijala“  (8b+), but writing my master’s thesis this time, I just didn’t have the head to send it.

And also, the start of Fengijala shares the one of Nangijala, which I have done so often, that I just don’t want to climb it anymore.

This is why I decided to get back on the project to the left of Nangijala, where I still had one move I could not do so far.

I just got the new Hiangle as a test shoe from Bergzeit and thought this would be the right route to check its performance. And I was really pleased by the hard sole and the great heal of the shoe, making me get my full hand onto the top hold of this really long move!

So my first impression of the shoe makes me hope for more!!!

I will also write a test article for Bergzeit about the shoe, once I have checked it out in some more pitches and could gain some experience with it.

But so far I am really pleased.
