I've had all my gear stolen and looking at what is on the market now for bouldering, abseiling, and solo ascending with a top rope. Shoes to cover all aspects as a starting point again too. Any help please

Thanks for that. It's just a kick in the balls when you've built it up for years. Is the climb x gear any good? Shoes etc

Sorry to hear that. Not personally tried them myself but I do see plenty down at my local wall so someone will be able to help. As I mentioned above Go Outdoors have a good sale on, I saw some Evolv shoes for 40 on Sunday. Also 60m Beal ropes for 64. Might be worth a look.

That's brilliant thanks. Just hope the quality from there is good.

I would talk to and support a proper climbing shop with knowlegeable staff, they may be willing to give you a special discount for a bulk buy

I bought the cheap lace up climb X shoes 40 for long easier routes and trashing at the wall. I now have a worn out (flexible) pair for the grit. New stiff pair for edgy stuff and half size bigger for all day use. I use them up to F7c &V7. My 2 pairs of fancy shoes never come out of the bottom of the rucksack. It's rare that I think the shoes are stopping me.
So for me they are great, but they do fit my feet really well.

PS. I've just bought the Beal 60m for 57.50 from Go Outdoors.

I also had ClimbX lace when I started indoor bouldering 2yr ago. After a year I reached f6a standard or so, I bought some 5.10 pinks. I did notice an immediate improvement especially on small edges - the ClimbX are very floppy in comparison - but the 5.10s also felt more secure on small smeary footholds (better rubber?). Both pairs were same length, though the 5.10s took a bit more wearing in to get comfortable, probably due to a more aggressive heel shape.
