I went to the East Side Shoe Repair for a little help with my new project. I am having them cut the soles off an older pair of Scarpa Freney's and putting on rock shoe rubber in its place. So far so good. The one boot with the sole pulled is SUPER light and i am excited to see the next step. I am going to get a pair of Bolt on Crampons from BD for the pons. I should get the boots back in a week or so and then all I need to do is finish the job and go climbing. I will post again with how they turn out.
