My Tora's Just Died! 4 out of 5 stars

Review by: doyleld23, 2007-02-25


I bought my Tora's back in June (8 months ago). I was a new climber so by today they had died. They are stretched out so much that I could wear them out on the town and not even have them hurt my feet. Also the velcro is shot to heck. I had to cut the straps because they were long enough to tie in a bow. So with all the negative out of the way, here's the good. They have held up well over 8 months and have brought me from climbing 5.7 to 5.10. They are GREAT starter shoes. Get them.

This rope is amazing. It flows through your ATC and biners so well! When I first used the rope it had so much give to it, but the more I climbed on it the better it got. My rope is bicolored as well. I would strongly encourage getting your rope bicolored. You'll be glad you did. Have fun!
