    summer climbing boots ?

    For waterproof boots good for spikes I use meindl air streams, for all other climbing I use salewa rapace. The rapace can be used on spikes also as they are crampon compatible but for long stints I'd say the meindl are better on spikes.

    Salewa generally have a narrow footbed.

    Base Anchors

    Mainly for ease of undoing bro. You could also clip Into it and sever the line below if you felt you would have to walk away from the stem during a rescue but it's 99% purely for ease of untieing.

    canopy anchors

    i dont run the carbiner around the rope as i feel with a redirect in place the rope runs against the carabiner and not the pulley when retrieving, a minor issue but just a teeny difference.

    canopy anchors
