I love mine... It's smaller and lighter than the Gri-Gri, and pulling the rope through it is not a work out, as it can be with the Gri-Gri with fatter ropes.

Takes some getting used to when feeding rope to a leader, but a few belays is all it takes to get it down to a smooth feed.

I was introduced to Yosemite Bum resoles through my gym, when my regular resoler was in Yosemite. I contacted Brian, who said he could do my shoes in a week, so I sent em off. Due to him moving to another place, it took a week longer, and he that I let him furnish me with a new pair of like shoes for that week. I was sold on his customer service at that point, and have gotten several pairs of shoes resoled by him since then. The rubber he uses is much better than Five-Ten Stealth believe it or not, and he gets the shoes back to me much quicker than any other resoler I've used, and for cheaper. (Note-Rubber Room cost more, and I've never gotten shoes back in less than from them) All of his resoles have been top notch, and have not delammed yet.I'll never use another resoler, other than YoseBum.

Love mine... Climbed with em for 5 years now, and have used on everything from short sport to grade III multipitch Trad. Light, strong, durable, and the wire gate allows more room for my beefy sausages to work with quickly.

My main harness... The 6 gearloops are great for those who rack on thier harness like I do. Wide back and cushy leg loops make for a very comfortable harness.
