Gee, I didn't know Manolo Blahnik and Jimmy Choo made ice climbing boots.

Patience, dear LtL, it will get cold again.

I don't think LTL knows who Manolo Blahnik or Jimmy Choo are...

But, she did get some sweet new boots!

Oh but I do know who Manolo Blahnik is (because of Sex and the City) but the only $400 shoes I get excited about are my super sweet brand new Kayland ice boots. Woohoo!

And though I agree in general that gear does not make the climber, I am hoping that it will in this case. I've suffered through 7 years of climbing in boots that never really fit well in the first place and I'm still a pretty crappy climber. It must be the fault of the boots!

You're not a crappy climber, you just do crappy climbs. At DF6.0 you can take me up Power Play.

If Blahnik and Choo make $400-$500 pumps, just think what their line of plastic ice climbing boots would cost-- suddenly Kaylands seem quite reasonable. Not that Brendan hassled you over the decision.

Edit: Or was he hoping you'd opt for a nice $50 "tennis bracelet"?

They aren't plastic... The boots are leather!

And Evan I think you'll be able to see where the crampons attache...



Dennis isn't gonna recognize LTL in her new gear! Mountain Hardware jacket, NF fleece hoody, Arcteryx or Cloudvail pants... Arcteryx backpack and the new boots!

She did good when she got hitched to a buddy gear-a-holic ;\)
