More and more climbing equipment suppliers rely on social and ecological production of their products. But is that important to consumers?

Once you have found a suitable climbing finch, you won't give it up anytime soon. But with more training, progress and new areas of application, the demands on the shoe also change. When is the right time for another climbing finch? The range from softer models to more aggressive climbing finches with more pre-tension and downturn is varied.
Pimples serve as a belay device and as a walking aid. But not all ice pimples are the same - completely different equipment is used at light full speed than for ice climbing. We take a closer look at the most important differences.
