I began using the Super Makalu's about 12 years ago when my knee started having issues. With them I was able to hike up Half Dome in Yosemite many, many times. Then I expanded my hiking to the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains every summer, starting at Tuolumne Meadows and ending at at summit of Mt.Whitney,covering app. 80 miles. This continued for six summers until my knee finally gave out. Exactly 9 months after the surgery, I was once again standing on top of Whitney. I throughly like the ease of slipping my hands through the grips, and holding the cork handles for miles and miles. Both my wife and I have the Super Makalu's and wouldn't part with them or move to a different brand. Summits with my Makalu: Mt. Shasta, 14,200, Mt. Whitney, 14,595' (6times!)White Mt. 14,200' (7 times!) Half Dome 8,500' 14 times! Love 'em!! The picture is of me on the backside of Whitney at app. 14,000'!
