I have never had an issue on wet rocks or roots. Great traction on all surfacesI'm debating between these boots and a pair of Zamberlan, which I believe are having a chunking issue with a batch of their soles. I don't think you mentioned anything about traction so far. My concern is slipping on wet rocks. My current boots are great, but on their last leg and technically not hiking boots so I'm looking to see if I'm missing out on something.
I just got back from a week long backpack trip with quite a bit of rain. My buddy slipped on wet boulders so many times it made me really think I should choose my next boot wisely. Any experience there?
I really like the vibram kletterlift sole!
