Trail-running/hiking shoe

I am looking to purchase some trail-running/hiking shoes for long hikes/runs. From 10-45miles of mixed jogging and hiking.

Looking for a shoe that would be light, but that would provide good cushion (is this combination possible?).

Any recommendations?

I can buy La Sportiva Quantum or Wildcat for about 70$ should I get either of those? Are they must fit if I know my size in other LS shoes?

Re: Meniscus Repair....

Will they be removing the damaged part of the meniscus or is it a true repair? Big difference. I've had two tears cut out (both radial complex tears, one on each knee).

Interior decorating - climbing wall

OK Summitposters, we all know you can climb. Plenty of you can build a climbing wall. But can you decorate?

Hang board advice for a novice?

I am considering purchasing a small hang board for my climbing fitness program and have a few questions:

1) is it even advisable for a beginner to work a hang board?

2) what sort of holds would be best for a novice that top-ropes ~5.8? I am assuming hand-width size jugs and such?

3) Is there a fairly high risk of muscle/tendon injury for someone new to the sport on a hang board?

I realize ...

Weight for climbing

Became pretty obsessive with my weight the last half year and felt better in climbing than ever ... Though i think i reached my limit of what is healthy and the best on rock...

Went from 89kg to 76kg in 5 months.

Now the problem is that winter season is coming up and i feel like i have no reserve when something is going wrong...

For which climbing discipline what fatpercentage is the best? It ...
