I have been climbing for around 6 months now and just led my first 5.8 and 5.9 in Sandrock last weekend. needless to say, now I'm hooked. Here's my problem. My first pair of shoes were a pair of MadRock Fenix's that I bought at an REI garage sale for $30. Great shoes just too beginner for me now. I then bought a pair of MadRock Flash 2.0 because they were on sale on The Clymb. I have bought worn these shoes out from gym climbing and now climbing on real rock.
Being outside climbing last weekend really made me realize how much an aggressive toe helps you climb MUCH harder. That and the fact that I like having a shoes that doesn't have a lot of give in it. So I guess my question is, can anyone recommend a shoe (brand does not matter) that has this aggressive toe and is also relatively rigid? Any help is appreciated!
