The Copilot: How civilized!

We have had more than a few hikes/scrambles around Southwest B.C. that have made us earn our right to be there.

First Impressions and Observations: Before getting the Scarpa Crux approach shoes I had never tried them on before. I just picked my size and when they arrived...
