    Climbing Gear Recommendation

    Get a hold of a pair of TC Pros, they are essentially a trad version of the Katanas. They use the same last, but they've relaxed the heel rand, decreased the toe volume, stiffened them up considerably, and they cover your anklebone for wide cracks. Size them with a slight toe curl for a performance fit, as they will stretch a little.

    The Mythos are super soft, and round in the toebox. Good for thin cracks and friction, but not a good choice for wider cracks or edging. Having said that, it's ultimately all about the fit of the shoe and your foot. If they fit you better, that's more important, get them. They are unlined and will stretch a lot, at least a full size.

    I have the ATN TopClimber which I have used many times in the slip. Like you, I hope I never need to use it offshore.

    The usual warning on this stuff: Always tie knots - don't rely on a halyard shackle.

    My recollection is that Jim went up the rig eight times!
