Not many people are strictly single-discipline climbers; it's more fun to switch between sport, trad, bouldering, and gym climbing, which means you either need a quiver of shoes or a pair that can handle everything you throw at it, like the Mad Rock Lyra Women's Climbing Shoe. With a moderately asymmetrical shape, a shape-retaining Tek Flex synthetic upper, and relatively flat sole, the Lyra can move from bolt-clipping to pebble-wrestling to gear-plugging to plastic-pulling without sacrificing performance or comfort. The Arch Flex polycarbonate midsole and dual hook-and-loop straps provide a supportive, glove-like fit, while the 3. 8mm Science Friction 3. 0 rubber sticks to slabs, jibs, and dishes with equal aplomb. For the boulderers and serious sport climbers out there, the Lyra features a 3D-molded Torque heel, which has a super-snug fit and has been outfitted with textured X5 rubber for maximum grip, hold, and sensitivity when you're heel hooking your way up your newest problem. There's a rubber patch on top of the toe, too, to assist with toe hooks, and a slightly elastic R2 rand that hugs your foot without squeezing it to death.

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.
