I have been a big fan of Boreal since day one in the USA. Every first ascent I have done on rock but two and EVERY solo worth mentioning I did in Boreals. You'll hear more about the Ice Mutant fruit boot I have been using later in the fall as the temps drop. But here is a primer on the new rubber on my boots and on the newest rock shoes. Some pretty amazing stuff!.
