Voted best in class 2016 by Gear Institute, the Garmont DragonTail LT Approach Shoe combines stability and grip for the approach and for climbing when you're carrying a heavy load. The shoe is built on Garmont's Alpine Tech last that provides you with a precise, wrapped fit for precision when you're tackling challenging terrain. The thoughtful midsole construction enhances this precision. For example, the toe area has a very firm density for low compression to enhance climbing performance while the mid-section has a medium density for shock absorption and comfort during the long approach. The heel features a firm density midsole as well to increase durability and provide stability. The DragonTail LT is designed to tackle the challenging terrain of the mountains. When designing the shoe, Garmont loaded it with the features you'll need to stay comfortable, protected, and achieve high performance. For starters, the water-resistant suede uppers keep your feet dry in unpredictable mountain environments while toe and heel rubber bumpers protect and support the uppers for long-lasting wear. Vibram soles offer edging performance across technical terrain and reliable grip across firm trails when you're backpacking. Finally, the to-the-toe lacing system provides you with confident foot security whether you're climbing, hiking or both.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
