I just saw this boudldering pic on FP with a guy "shallow water soloing", as suggested by a user. Deep water soloing is one of the numerous climbing avatars.
But how climbing shoes react to water? Is the friction of the sole still correct when wet (not in my experience)? How uncomfortable is it to wear wet shoes? What with saline water?
Oh, well, just a not so interesting topic for the late afetrnoon...
