2. Metolius Upshot Belay Glasses

The Upshots have a field of vision that aims higher on the wall than our original Belay Glasses. They have sport-style temples with low-profile nose pads that fit better when used with glasses or sunglasses and increased peripheral vision.

A durable case keeps them safe while transporting in your pack or climbing with them.

(79 g),  22 kN, 12 mm webbing, CE/UIAA certified. Also shown: Inferno II Go To  Ouickdraw $17.95 and Anchor Draw $29.95.

With a curved, asymmetric last and a chiseled low-profile toe, the Instinct is a powerful and precise lace- up shoe that excels across a variety of technical styles and disciplines. The Instinct is the most supportive shoe in our super popular Instinct family. The brand- new Instinct WMN shares all of the same benefits of the regular Instinct, but incorporates a softer, more flexible Vibram XS Grip2, our PAF Heel system, and a reduced-volume heel cup.
