Hi my name is Noah! I'm from Ocean, NJ, but have been living in Raleigh, NC for the past 5 years. Since moving down here for school and work I've become more and more engaged in the outdoor lifestyle. Whether it be climbing, hiking, camping, I enjoy it all. I have been mainly rock climbing for the past 3 years and it has taken me all over the place! If you have any questions feel free to send them my way!
prAna Mojo Shorts - Men's
My shorts of choice!
I personally love these shorts! I wear them almost everyday when I'm climbing! They're lightweight and give me enough mobility to climb without any problems. I will say one setback is that they aren't the most durable when it comes to outdoor climbing. However I've aggressively used them on all types of rock and they definitely have held up well! I definitely recommend these especially if you mainly gym climb.
evolv X1 Climbing Shoe - Men's
My current shoe of choice (for bouldering)!
So initially when I got these shoes, I was a little apprehensive. They hurt my feet quite a bit as they are very asymmetric and quite downturned. However, after a few sessions I really fell in love with these shoes. I like how soft the rubber is. It's really helpful for feeling the rock. The heel fits my foot perfectly(for reference Scarpa instincts also fit my heel perfectly, but butora acros do not) The toe rubber is nice as well. I've climbed my hardest grade outside in these shoes and after extensive use I definitely will be getting these again. I found that they really excel on overhanging climbs, as well as face climbs, but I would definitely not recommend them if you're into slab (I took a 20 ft digger because I felt them roll off the foothold I was on, I put on Miuras and that same hold felt like a jug).If you have any questions feel free to ask!
