The Scarpa Chimera is the pinnacle of modern climbing shoe design and innovation.
With its vacuum like upper lacing system, TPS insert and 8 panel upper, this shoe is built for climbers tackling the most demanding routes and boulders. The SRT randing system and the hand built heel make the Chimera the perfect choice for toe or heel hooking.
The TPS plastic insert is positioned under the forefoot which gives better support for the toes when pushing down hard. When smearing it extends out, which increases the surface area which produces superior grip.
“If I could only have one shoe for bouldering, it would be the Chimera”. Dan Varian
