If these walls are overhanging, you often see people's feet slip off holds, their bodies take wild swings and then the next 20 seconds will be spent in a valiant effort trying to put that toe back on the hold – to no avail. Another common sight is when a climber is trying to make a big move, certainly in reach, but as they go up for the hold, their bums stick out and pull them off.

Climbing Shoes

The fit of climbing shoes varies dramatically between manufacturers and styles, but don't let this worry you. If you buy a pair and they don't fit we will let you swap them for a different size without charging you any postage fees. All we ask is that you don't climb in them before you send them back! To help you choose the right sized shoe first time around we have added a new sizing tool to our rock shoe pages. We call it the Shoeculator. Toughtags.
