/ climbing shoe stickiness
I use warm soapy water.
I kept myold ones clean and grime free and wiped them down after each outing was wondering if that was was ok thanks for reply
Also you can "squeak" your shoes. Before each climb clean the toe area carefully with a bit of spit then rub them dry and rub hard with your thumb so that they Squeak.
As toasted said, squeak them! They work better and stops extra grime getting on the rock.
I usually carry a clean beer towel to wipe the soles off snd stand on bevore climbing ill try spit the next time im out.
Warm soapy water seem to have improved grip on mine (ok ok I admit, I just showered with them lol). I think you need to be careful not to use hot water though as it can damaged them.
Pro tip: don't chuck them on the bath mat after you are done as the colour will bleed on the mat and you will have some explaining to do :)
Yeah after some wet trad sessions my feet have been right orange my new ones are bright yellow oh dear
