Thanks to everyone who came out to this year's 12 Hours of Summit Suffering! Y'all came, y'all climbed for 12 hours straight, and you guys sure as sh#* conquered!
Not every gear post can be about the latest and greatest shiny new climbing object that may or may not give you that extra boost to climb harder, faster, lighter, stronger, or dumber. Sometimes you have to realize that some shoes have stuck around the product line for awhile for a reason. So today we visit the Instinct S from Scarpa, with the same last as the now famous Instinct VS, but with a slightly more sensitive feel, and a noticeable lack of a velcro strap — which was intentional because the "S" in "VS" stands for slipper and adding a velcro strap would ruin that line of thought (they may have had other reasons).
