Here's what other sites are saying:
The Dharma Pro, from Scarpa, was developed specifically for the Exum Mountain Guides, who asked Scarpa to create a shoe that could stand up to the intensity that professional mountain guides dish out every day. The Dharma Pro was born, and this shoe can hike and climb like no other.
Contoured through the heel & sticky on the forefoot, the Dharma Pro approach shoe from Scarpa balance climbing prowess with hiking support for solid approach shoe performance. The all-leather uppers are supremely tough, and the bi-layer outsole makes hauling a heavy pack easy on the feet. Board lasted forefoot for edging.

The official shoe of Exum Mountain Guides, the Scarpa Dharma Pro Approach Shoes can hike and climb like no other. A suede, mid-height upper is lined with Vellutina for breathability and ankle support without restriction. A cushioned footbed and an EVA midsole give you all day comfort and a cushy heel with a defined braking area enhances stability and traction. So why not just wear a normal hiking boot? Because the Scarpa Dharma Pro Approach Shoes have a Vibram Spyder and Sticky Dot outsole that will grip rocks and do easy fifth-class climbs as you make your way to the base of the real climb.

The Scarpa Dharma Pro Shoe excels on days when getting to the pitch is tougher than the pitch itself. The leather upper provides protection and durability for all-day, all-mountain scrambles, while the Vibram Spyder/Dot combo sole grips like mad on everything from smooth rock to wet moss.
