      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!

How to clean rock shoes

Recommended Posts

Aces have not been available for 20 years. Fires have just passed their 20th anniversary (1984), Aces didnt come on the market till around 92.

 

Started this game in 1984. Fires were my first shoe. I still use them for alpine routes cuz I can get a fleece sock on in them now. And I'm with Bug on this one: I've never cleaned them, ever, and they smell just fine. Well, mebbe not "just" fine... Oh aw right, they stink like a cowpie! cantfocus.gif

I wipe the toes on my pants right before I start the pitch.

 

I used to do that a lot, but found it was actually somewhat of a bad habit because I would forget and wipe them on my leg when I was wearing shorts. I know, I know...anal kind of thing, but if your leg is sweaty, there goes the purpose of cleaning the bottom of your shoes. Now I just wipe one shoe on top of the other which seems to work well...love the mat I bootied off a friend for craggin'.
