      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Resole mountaineering boots

Recommended Posts

Where is the best place to resole mountaineering boots in the Seattle area? (I tried searches and FAQ, nothing in this site). I have a pair of Montrails that are just plain worn out. Thanks

Ramuta's says they do rock shoes and sandals, but do they resole boots?

 

They claim to be the only third generation shoe repair in Seattle. I believe Chick's on Mercer Island is also third generation.

Ramuta's doesn't do hiking/mountaineering boots. I just asked them a few days ago.

Are Montrails really worth resoling? My only resole experience was with Raichle Eigers 'cause I loved them and thought they'd go a few years. One season was it. They next year they blew out three miles from the car and I had to tie the soles back on wrapping accessorie cord around the whole thing to get me back. That's my last resole on low end climbing boots.

I like my Montrails, they are wide and lots of rubber on the toe for alpine rock routes. I have several hundred miles on them, a dozen alpine rock climbs, a few glacier climbs, they've held up well. I'll give Dave a try and see what happens. Might be better off buying new. cantfocus.gif
