The Ultimate List of La Sportiva Katana Alternatives

La Sportiva Katana alternatives

The La Sportiva Women’s Katanas were my first pair of climbing shoes. They’ve since been discontinued by La Sportiva, which is an absolute shame. The Katanas are the perfect all-around shoe, geared towards newer and experienced climbers alike. Once broken in, they could last on your feet for hours, without extreme pain. I currently have 1.5 pairs (lost a shoe bouldering at the Zephyrs, it’s size 35.5, holler if you find it), and I know that one day, they will no longer be resole-able. In anticipation, I’ve been testing out a bunch of other shoes from La Sportiva. Here’s my list of La Sportiva Katana alternatives.

Mammut Multipitch Chalk Bag Review

Mammut Multi Pitch Chalk Bag Review

When I met with Mammut during Summer OR 2015, little did they know that they were going to blow my mind. Why deal with a pack to carry your things when you could have a chalk bag to eliminate most of your carry needs?

Internally, Mammut has debuted prototypes of this carry all chalk bag, but this past season was when they put the idea to fruition. The Mammut Multi Pitch Chalk Bag is a brilliant piece of gear for when you’re way off the deck.
