What do these world-class rock-climbing athletes have in common?
- Stefan Glowacz - He climbed the 900-meter rock wall of Renard Towers in Antarctica, finding a new path.
- Ines Papert - She was a winner of the World Cup Ice Climbing Championship.
- Magdalena Röck - She won the Youth World Championship.
- Robert Jasper - He soloed the three major faces of the Alps.
They all use Red Chili rock climbing gear. Stefan Glowacz, who founded Red Chili, says, only rock climbers know what rock climbers want.
For skilled climbers, it is important to get a good pair climbing shoes that are designed for the type of climbing they do, and that the shoes fit properly. 123Mountain has all the Red Chili climbing shoes including Session VCR, Sausalito Lace ImpactZone, Corona, Demin, Lace, and Velcro.
Rock and Ice magazine says the Red Chili ImpactZone climbing shoe is as comfortable as a favorite pair of jeans and that the all-leather, fully-lined Sausalito Lace ImpactZone has some of the stickiness rubber, making it easy to climb high-angle faces while wearing these shoes.
It is important to select the climbing shoes with the proper amount of arch for the type of route you want to climb. Aggressive climbing shoes have more arch that helps you hook your foot on intense overhangs. Beginners normally do not have aggressive climbing shoes as the first pair. Advanced climbers insist on them. Beginners need climbing shoes that are durable, where advanced climbers select shoes with thin soles and a tight fit, for the ability to make precise moves.
Red Chili has climbing shoes that are good for beginners such as the Corona. The Corona has a stiff sole and is slightly turned down, but not aggressive. They work well for outdoor climbs with angles up to 95 degrees. The more advanced aggressive climbing shoes from Red Chili are terrific for the toughest routes.
Whatever you choose you will be certain to do some hot climbing with Red Chili gear.
