Does anyone here go barefoot climbing ? If so, any advice, tips, stories ?
I love barefoot climbing. The challenge is that in rope and harness tree climbing you need to engage your feet or a foot on the rope, otherwise you're climbing all arms which is not sustainable. For barefoot climbing I've found that a webbing foot loop hung from a handled ascender works very well.
