On the approach shoe spectrum of climb-ability vs wear-ability, La Sportiva's TX2 certainly skews toward the vertical, making use of a Vibram Mega-Grip Traverse-Lite sole and one piece polyester upper to jam, smear and cruise up easy terrain. The shoe itself is lightweight and packable when carried on a harness, featuring a stretchy cord on each heel to hold the shoes together in a neat package.
