This is what the internet was invented for

I’m going climbing in Scotland later this month. There’s not much you can do to prepare for Scottish winter if you live in Cambridge, but I did dig out and give my mountaineering boots some much-needed attention.

A half-serious search for “how to repair ends of shoelaces” brought me to the wonderful Ian’s Shoelace Site. I will now be the envy of my companions because my boots will be laced thusly. Great website!

I look forward to avoiding crampon catching and the tieability gains from an 11% end length increase.
