La Sportiva – Tora

Easter Monday I made my outdoor climbing debut at Dalkarskärret outside of Uppsala. It was harder than I thought it would be but not too bad. We all enjoy a bit of a challenge, don’t we?

Actually, crack climbing is way different from the indoor climbing I’ve done during the winter, so I need to adjust my technique accordingly. Yesterday we were out climbing in Hagby and it went much better, so I think I’m getting the hang of it now. It’s still a bit awkward though and I don’t feel comfortable doing some of the moves yet, but I’m sure it will get better with more practise.

This is what my shoes looked like after Dalkarskärret (to tell the truth they were a bit broken before that already).

So I get myself new La Sportiva – Tora shoes:

They are not only comfortable to wear, they are great to climb with too!
