Both pairs of shoes are similar in size. The Genius shoes, due to the toe shape and material, can be worn more tightly with the same comfort.

They both fit similarly to 43 muiras and 43 scarpa instincts.

Fancy la sportiva genius shoes EU 43. Used once in a gym. $125 shipped with original box and packaging. Includes free gift.


La Sportiva katanas EU 43.5. Seriously freaking awesome shoes. I just haaaate tying and untying them at the gym so I got muiras velcro. Great condition. $85 shipped. Comes with free gift.

WILL TRADE FOR: Scarpa Instinct VS in size 43. Must be in excellent condition.

Oops forgot the size! Sorry. They’re 43.5. They’re both a great fit. I have a medium volume foot... just slightly wide. They’re both snug. The genius (I think you called them solutions) are more snug but the no-edge toe and overall design makes them comfortable enough to be as snug as they are. The katanas are like a hair wider than muiras but get a better fit due to the laces. I actually like katanas far better than I like muiras... again I’m just a lazy climber and want Velcro haha.

they’re both incredible shoes. The katanas are basically a do-it-all shoe. They slot into cracks, hold edges, smear, hook. They have a slightly less sticky rubber than the genius.

the genius shoes are obviously not as well-intended for trad and micro edges or cracks, but they smear and stick extremely well and are designed to send hard sport/boulder routes and they’re basically the most comfortable downturned shoe on planet earth.

neither is better. They’re just slightly different.

Sold (claimed and awaiting payment)!

No this is a rack with double overlapped sizes from 2mm nuts up to size 2 BD cams, with singles in BD 3 and 4. The tricams double up the sizes and shave a ton of weight. Don’t sass me about it. If you have questions check out the gear stats on camp/Metolius/DMM :p

and thank you for asking!

Not sass, just clarifying. I use the term differently, and would be surprised if my partner showed up at the base with a double rack from black alien to #4 in this configuration. Glad you found a buyer, seems like the price was right.

Don’t get cute because you don’t know what “doubles” mean to 99.9% of your peers.

No worries - to be clear I was just a wee bit hopeful that you were actually selling 2 of those racks for $600, in which case I'd now have more cams than I could ever use. :-)

If your sale doesn’t go through, I’d like the full rack.

Hey ya’ll, sorry for the delay! Busy week starting up this quarter of school.

jack’s Shipping will be update today.

Got the rack in the mail today. Most of it looks not placed once. Couple cams placed maybe once or twice for practice but killer prices for killer gear...every piece has racking biner color coded with no anodization scratched off. Virgin rack I bought for a steal!!! Definitely happy. Definitely buy again from Allan again.

I received the Petzl harness today, too.  Pretty much brand new as well.  Thanks!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
