Losing a valued team member is never easy. But watching them go on to do great work helps take the sting out of it. In Laura Shumaker’s case, that work has been founding SFT Climbing to invent a dual-mode climbing shoe.

Once on board, she never failed to deliver on her potential: smart, fast and dedicated.
At SFT Climbing, she has been maintaining a blog of their progress. Check it out here
