I bought these shoes used and have had them now for 2 years. They're sturdy shoes with decent sticking ability and good support. They're also comfy enough I use them as trail-runners every once in a while.

I've had these shoes for about two years, They don't climb very well as the rubber is too hard. Also the smooth sole is very slippery on the trail. I have a pair of guide tennies, they are more comfortable and climb way better. On a plus the D7's are much more durable, I think soon I will resole with dot stealth rubber.
I still like them as shoes. Now that I have my tennies I don't waist my time climbing in these.

So far so good! I bought these shoes so I could do free moves while aid climbing, which doesn't work in my hiking boots. So far they've been excellent, and I've also used them for route-setting in the gym, where I've set routes as hard as 5.11 (and climbed them, too). They don't seem to fit my arch perfectly, otherwise I'd rate them a five. I'll update this review when I get back from my first big wall this spring.

I have tried out many an approach shoe and the Montrail D7 is far and away the best I have ever found. They fit like a glove with no superfluous material or weight. They are very well made, and hold up over time. Cushioning in the heel is good for approaches, and the stiff sole along the toebox lets these edge like no other approach shoe. The rubber rand adds to the durability and climbability of these shoes.
Very highly recommended; this will be all I buy from now on. (even though I can get pro deals on competitors shoes!)

I used these shoes for the first time last week on alpine rock. Approached in a 35# pack (quite comfy) for 14 miles RT, straped on instep crampons for 30 meters of sun cups (a little sloppy), did the climb to 5.7 13 pitches and the descent w/ scree gaitors. The rubber is too hard for my tastes so I'm having them resoled w/ dot stealth as I write...wont' last I know, but they'll climb better. The vibram is tough but if you want to tech. rock to 5.9 go w/ the guide tennie.
