For my recent climb of Mount Sir Donald and Uto up in British Columbia, Canada, I struggled to figure out what would be the best footwear option. I needed something burlier than a climbing shoe, as we would encounter rugged scree and snowy terrain, but I also needed a shoe that could not only scramble well, but climb more technical vertical terrain. Believing in the power of Stealth rubber, I took a shot with the Five Ten Dome Mid hiking shoes and ended up finding the absolute perfect shoe for our adventures.
