The Eclipse is perfectly suited to the entry-mid grade climber. Using Scarpa's new 'Rock Comfort' technology the shoe delivers outstanding fit and comfort out of the box and is ideal for those looking to wear the shoes for extended periods of time, such as multi-pitch climbs. Made in suede the shoe is unlined enhancing performance and comfort, it uses a medium stiffness midsole for support and Vibram Megabyte rubber sole.

Scarpa Eclipse Reviews

General comments: I've had these shoes for about two and a half years now and despite the fact that they are very badly worn (my toes poke through the end of the right shoe) I still wear them a lot for multi-pitch routes just because they are so amazingly comfortable. When new they were much better suited to smearing than edging which suits me just fine as a grit climber. The rubber is not as sticky as 5.10s but the megabyte formula seems to work quite well. When the boots were new I did get a lot of colour transfer onto my feet, trousers etc which i found a little annoying but this soon stopped. I would definitely recommend these to a mid-grade climber or anyone looking for a comfortable place to put your feet on a long route.
Pros: Very comfortable, perfect for long routes and multi-pitch.
Cons: Sole is not very good for standing on small edges and the heel is a bit loose for me but I guess this depends on the shape of your foot!

General comments: A very versatile rock shoe from Scarpa great for long routes to bouldering. In my opinion there are probably better for climbing where a stiff edge is useful for example small footholds. I have used these shoes alot since i got them last febuary and i found them brillant for all different styles of climbing except gritstone bouldering where a slighty less stiff shoe would be better but they are still ok.
The padded tongue is very comfy while the leather stretches and becomes very comfy when worn for a long period of time. With the leather stretching it is useful to buy the shoe a little small.
Pros: good fitted heel, comfy fit, stiff edge, high quality build
Cons: a little stiff (but you can't have it every way),leather made so they do stretch
