Climbing Shoes: Vasque Ascender II
Vasques replacement for the original “Shoenards”, they were sold in the late 1970s through the early 1980s. They came in sizes 5 thru 12 and in two widths. Ascenders were stiff and rugged for standing in aid slings but had decent edging capabilities as well. The rubber wasn’t very sticky but some difficult climbs were done in them.
