      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!

Just got two pairs back...

 

One, a pair of dragons, has the downturned toe rebuilt with the downturn still there...the other pair are anazasis...

 

this work is amazing...broken in shoes with crisp soles...climb better than new!

John definitely knows what he's doing. I sent a pair of Katanas in last year, he said they would take at least 2-3 weeks, had them back in my hands 10 days after I shipped them to him and they were better than new.

I used to work right by the Ramuta family's downtown shop before the rock shoe operation moved to montana and got hooked on fresh c4 perfectly glued by expert hands.

 

I've tried other resolers but ramuta keeps me coming back...i've had some shoes (miuras, mocasyms) go back for multiple resoles till I wore holes in the uppers and stretched the leather beyond usability. Good stuff.

I have nothing but great things to say about Ramuta's work. Timely, fair prices, and imppecable workmanship. As RUMR said, a freshly resoled pair of broken-in shoes from Ramuta are better than a new pair at significantly less cost.

 

As another plus, his resoles are bomber - I've never had one delam unlike the other guy in Fremont (Dave XXXX) where delams were a constant issue and often very severe the few times that I used him...

Another thumbs up for Ramuta's. I have been taking my rock shoes there for years, and have had nothing but good experiences.

mountain soles in portland does fine work too. i've taken six pairs of shoes to them over the past four years and each time they outdo themselves in every way - quality of work, service, speed, advice, and they aren't too bad on the wallet, either.
