Look closely

Have a close look at the home page pic. Has Ross Suter, forgotten to put his climbing shoes on? Look at the shoes he is wearing and the shoes on his harness. Just an honest observation

:P

ha ha! No the shoes on his harness are approach shoes, Ross just has great footwork on rock, perhaps thats why his feet look so dainty! Im sure he climbs a grade harder now after cutting off all that hair! - much lighter!

Don't think Ross forgot to put his climbing shoes on -
The first guys who did this climb also did it in their leather hiking boots......

Yip all clean and respectable these days! Well apart from a bushy beard now and then.
BTW Ross has guided so many people up this route that he usually does it in his approach shoes anyway.
