Hi! I work for the Gear Co-op, a climbing shop in southern CA that's also an e-tailer. We recently got back from OR, where I put together daily reports and photos of the gear we most want in our packs for future trips, including big-wall harnesses, approach shoes, quickdraws, cams, and more (see some of it below). Check out the writeups here: blog.gearcoop.com/category/out...

Thanks! It's great to see that there is hardly any innovation in climbing anymore! No need to replace anything on my rack or in my closet.

I wonder why people need compression socks??? Wonder if their introduction to the world has anything to do with minimalist shoes. . .

Compression socks predate Vibram FiveFingers, and the minimalist shoe trend that followed

I personally like 5 fingers. But I cringe that people are running marathons in them as heel strikers.

They are great for amphibious activities and sprinting/intervals.
