Otaki $122

... the Otaki is well suited towards hanging around on small holds/edges (i.e. trad climbing) or using even smaller edges to move quickly and efficiently upwards to the lower-off (i.e. sport climbing). The stiffness and support that the boot offers makes it quite versatile, particularly for the UK climber, as it is well suited towards a wide variety of different angles from edgy slabs, through vertical walls, to gently overhanging terrain... The only downside is that due to their residual stiffness, they - perhaps rather obviously - lack a certain degree of sensitivity. That said, I would argue that on an edge, which is essentially what they're designed for, sensitivity isn't always the key - security is - and with the Otaki's stiff sole they certainly felt secure. UKC
