In the mid-1980s, the climbing grade 5.10 stood for absolute extreme routes with maximum difficulty. Charles Cole, founder of Five Ten and the first ascender of adventurous plate and friction climbs, began developing outdoor footwear after slipping and almost falling on a climbing route. His goal was to develop shoes, with a specially formulated rubber compound, that offers extra grip. The result was the legendary Stealth Rubber. Until today, it is still at the forefront of the most challenging routes with further developed compounds. Especially popular all-round shoes such as the Anasazi, that has only been slightly change since its presentation, also benefit from these detail improvements.
